Get the Most From Your Data

Enterprise Data Catalog helps you build a strong, flexible foundation to power your data-driven transformation initiatives.
Here are a few examples:

Enhancing Data Quality

Enterprise Data Catalog helps you discover where critical trusted data is within your enterprise. You’ll get clear information about meaning, usage, and business context, helping you develop a deep understanding of your data before applying data quality rules. Data lineage and impact analysis capabilities provide the visibility and control you need to manage change and reduce errors.

Cataloging for Cloud

Every cloud migration journey requires a deep understanding of your data landscape: what data you have, where it’s coming from, and what it impacts. Enterprise Data Catalog delivers that view as part of a strategic approach to cloud migration that provides comprehensive data visibility and minimizes disruption as cloud initiatives evolve. .

Supporting Data Integration Efforts

Enterprise Data Catalog delivers data visibility with business context, which fosters business-IT collaboration and facilitates agile prototyping and development of data integration pipelines. Graphical views of lineage, data flows, and impact analysis help business users easily discover and better understand your data.

Identifying and Classifying Master Data

Enterprise Data Catalog helps you identify and classify master data about customers, products, suppliers, employees, and more—including prioritizing the sources that supply your master data. Metadata-based profiling provides insight into data accuracy and completeness, making it easier to plan MDM initiatives and support self-service.

Increasing the Power of Analytics

Whether your next-generation analytics needs involve self-service capabilities or cloud data lakes, you must discover your data before you prepare it. Informatica has what you need: ingest, integrate, and enrich your data with Informatica Data Engineering Integration; find, discover, and classify the data with Enterprise Data Catalog; then prepare your data with Enterprise Data Preparation.

Powering Data Governance at Scale

Successful data governance depends on knowing what data you have, where it is located, where it’s coming from, what the quality is, and how it's being used. Enterprise Data Catalog and its AI-driven insights help automate data discovery and cataloging processes so you can keep up with the ever-increasing volume of data. You can get visibility into all data—no matter where it resides—along with the critical business context you need to make informed decisions about data governance.
