Data Professionals

Visibility

It starts by discovering all of your organization’s data regardless of its IT environment. You’ll then understand each data set, its permissions, sensitivity and integrations. As your data grows, Waterline Data catalog software automatically and incrementally “fingerprints” all data and infers data lineage by analyzing actual data values for relational, cloud and Hadoop data.

Control

Using machine learning, Waterline Data catalog software automatically suggests tags and matches data fingerprints to business glossary terms. This process reduces manual tagging and the likelihood of human error while improving your overall metadata management.

Quality

Augmenting Waterline Data Catalog Fingerprinting function, data analysts and stewards accept or reject suggested tags. In the background, machine learning fine-tunes the tagging process, improving its metadata matching algorithm for a dramatic (and continuous) time savings compared to manual tagging processes.

Search

In the same manner online shopping sites allow you to easily find one product from millions, Waterline Data delivers search results, reviews and data lineage to business users in natural language.

Implement a Data Catalog Faster and Easier than You Think

You have thousands of data sets with millions of distinct data fields across your company and that number is growing every day. Manually documenting your data isn’t an option! The long-term, automated solution is using your existing data assets (Hadoop, cloud, relational, etc.) so you can spend more time using data and less time looking for it.

Automated Tagging

Automating the process reduces the time needed to tag your data by 80% by using Waterline Data Fingerprinting™, which combines enterprise-wide data analysis, machine learning and human curation to catalog data and data lineage at scale.

Native  Enterprise Data, Native Cloud Storage

Waterline Data’s cloud-native platform works on Hadoop and Spark to easily scale and handle all your enterprise’s data. It seamlessly integrates to Amazon S3, Azure, AWS and Google Clouds.

Tag Curation

Data stewards can automatically accept/reject Waterline’s AI-based suggested tags all while the catalog software learns, fine-tunes and improves the matching algorithm.

Any Data Source

Work seamlessly across a wide variety of data sources (relational, files, Hadoop, cloud, etc.) because you never know where the most important data is located.
