What is data catalog?

A data catalog is a centralized repository of metadata that provides a comprehensive inventory of an organization’s data assets. It acts as a reference guide, allowing users to easily search, discover, understand, and access data across different systems and platforms. The metadata in a data catalog includes information about the location, format, quality, lineage, and usage of data. This helps organizations to better manage their data assets, improve data quality, and enable data-driven decision making.

Additionally, a data catalog can facilitate collaboration among data users and improve data governance by ensuring compliance with data policies and regulations.
