Data Catalog 101

Finding Your Data in the Fog
View Now

You use data to make decisions that drive your business.

The challenge?

Legacy data management is insufficient for today’s cloud and big data environments. There is simply too much data to manually determine what data your organization has and who has access to it.

Waterline’s enterprise data catalog uses machine learning augmented with crowd sourcing to discover, govern, and rationalize enterprise data at scale. By connecting the right people to the right data, we make information easy to find and use.
