Introducing Smart Data Catalog 4.0 for Faster Use of Big Data

Posted on February 15th, 2017 | Todd Goldman

Today we’re very excited to announce early access availability of Smart Data Catalog 4.0, the latest version of the industry’s most trusted data catalog available.

A webinar with 451 Research on Smart Data Catalog 4.0’s latest features will be hosted on February 22. Click here to register.

 

With Smart Data Catalog 4.0, organizations can replace manual tagging of metadata with an automated process that rapidly classifies and organizes all of an organization’s data assets and lineage, making data easier to find and use for analytics, governance and control access for regulatory compliance as well as rationalize for greater storage and cost efficiency.

 

Smart Data Catalog 4.0’s new enhancements were all designed to accelerate the usability of trusted data in the enterprise. They include:

 

1. Support for directly fingerprinting and cataloging data located in Teradata, Oracle, MySQL, and other relational databases expands Waterline beyond prior version support for Hadoop-only data sources.

 

2. Tag-based access control identifies sensitive data fields and allows data tagged as “sensitive” to have access automatically controlled directly by Apache Ranger and Cloudera Sentry, along with other access control tools via REST API integration.

 

3. Dramatically improved user experience for the business professional with a new user interface “skin”; faster more scalable search based on the industry standard SOLR search platform, improved crowdsourced ratings, annotation, reviews,  and collaboration features.

 

4. The industry’s most extensible, open architecture that supports Hadoop, Spark, and Cloud deployment environments; an RDBMS plug-in architecture for relational sources, and extensive REST API partner integration and extensibility.

Our Smart Data Catalog has always been about connecting the right people with the right data–days from now, not weeks or months.

I encourage you to register for our webinar and hope you’ll take some time to learn more about the product here.

 

Thank you!
