An intelligent data catalog for the AI era
IBM Watson® Knowledge Catalog is a data catalog tool that powers intelligent, self-service discovery of data, models and more. The cloud-based enterprise metadata repository activates information for AI, machine learning (ML) and deep learning. Access, curate, categorize and share data, knowledge assets and their relationships, wherever they reside.
Use IBM Watson Knowledge Catalog for IBM Cloud Pak® for Data to deliver business-ready data to feed AI and analytics projects.
Cut time to automate data discovery, quality and governance by up to 90%¹
Open, intelligent data cataloging
Find relevant assets quickly and at scale based on intelligent recommendations from IBM Watson® and peers.
Track lineage and quality scores across structured data, unstructured data, AI models and notebooks.
Deploy on premises, on cloud, or fully managed as a service on IBM Cloud Pak for Data.
Organize, define and manage enterprise data to provide the right context and drive value across needs like regulatory compliance and data monetization.
Protect data, manage compliance and audit-readiness, and maintain client trust with active policy management and dynamic masking of sensitive data.
Consume and transform data at the speed of business with intuitive dashboards and flows that can be shared with peers or analytics tools.
The global search bar is available all the time, no matter where users are in the navigation or what content they’re working.
As the user types, the drop-down shows a list of suggested search strings based on both the current user’s and previous users’ search strings.
Data protection rules
Include classifications in the conditions for the data protection rules. For example, you can create a rule to deny access to certain users if the asset is classified as PII or confidential.
Users can view the full workflow activity history on any governance artifact including adds, updates and approvals.
Column filtering allows users to only analyze the data most relevant to their use case by scoping into or filtering out columns by name, column type or first N candidates.
Automatic business term assignment
Users can enable automatic business term assignment that is trained specific to your business’ terminology. It is continuously learning and improving based on users’ modifications.
Data quality visualization
Users can quickly visualize how their data quality has changed over time by data asset based on their specified time interval.
Users can save time by having preferences saved to their account so that important details are preserved by the product no matter where you access it.
