Overall Satisfaction with Collibra

It is being used across the university. Primary users are Finance, HR, Research, Advancement and Enrollment. Collibra servers as our metadata repertory, business glossary and report catalog. Collibra allows us to develop workflows that automate tasks such as data sharing agreements, report certification and general approvals and reviews.
  • Data Lineage and traceability
  • Easy to customize
  • Easy tool to use for business users
  • Workflow
  • Out of the box metrics
  • Data Quality and Data Profiling
  • Mobile interface
  • ROI is hard to measure because there are so many soft benefits that come from the tool. We do have a variety of metrics that we track using Collibra to better gauge the maturity of data governance.
Collibra offers more features [than alternatives] and is easy for business users to use. We did a proof of concept with Collibra using the Cloud service that allowed us to kick the tires and get a comfort level before we made the investment. At the time of our purchase the market was very immature and is continuing to evolve.
Collibra is well suited where you have multiple reporting environments and multiple source systems. Collibra works well in our environment because we can delegate roles and administration to departments or it can be used in a centralized environment. The ability to customize attributes and assets as well and integrate using the rest api is very important to us.
