Data cataloging made quick and easy

Most data cataloging tools are merely catalogs, helping little when profiling, preparing, exploring and analyzing a data set and then deploying those insights into an application. So, you typically need to export the data from your catalog into other tools. It's a time-consuming and scattershot process. Even worse, you might go through the hassle only to find that you still don't have the data you need.

IBM data cataloging solutions help you find the data from many sources without IT intervention or worrying about governance and compliance. They empower you to make productive use of your and third-party data by creating collaborative projects within a single self-service environment.

And thanks to their tight integration with other tools within the IBM Watson® data platform, data cataloging solutions allow you to move data between workspaces in a couple of clicks. In other words, IBM data cataloging will change how you run your business and how your organization carves new business models and prepares for the future of AI.
