Discovering and understanding data is challenging for users, especially when it's fragmented or siloed in multiple sources. Those responsible for systems and sources that generate data are also challenged to maintain informative data descriptions and ensure compliance with data policies and rules for its use. A central location that registers data sources and captures key metadata information about data assets is critical for effective data management.
