data.world Announces Enterprise-Grade Modern Catalog for Data and Analysis

AUSTIN, Texas, March 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- data.world today announced an intuitive, secure enterprise version of its widely-adopted modern catalog for data and analysis. Powered by patented technology and backed by the semantic web, data.world empowers both technical and non-technical team members to contribute to and benefit from data-driven insights to make better business decisions.

While many companies are investing in data-driven decisions, their progress is incremental because it focuses primarily on further empowering advanced data users. But data’s value truly starts to multiply the minute every employee can find it, understand it, use it, and contribute their unique knowledge. data.world’s modern catalog for data and analysis is designed to break through this bottleneck.

Organizations like RARE, a global nonprofit with offices in 8 countries, are using data.world’s enterprise data catalog to eliminate the complex learning curve of traditional data work and quickly enhance data’s value for more teams and a wider array of business problems. One of the world’s largest financial services companies uses data.world to ensure their knowledge base aligns with actual business use cases and definitions from the field, keeping data consistent, in context, and immediately useful across teams.

“Historically, data has been limited to an elite few within the enterprise, and this leaves out the majority of people,” said Brett Hurt, co-founder and CEO of data.world. “This means you have domain experts, who have remarkable insights about their corner of the universe, but don’t have a way to share their knowledge to improve data’s value. When most people can’t find the data they need, can’t understand it well enough to ask the right questions, and don’t have a common place to share their expertise, the companies they work for are only seeing a fraction of their potential, and for that matter, a fraction of data’s potential. Our goal with data.world is to give the enterprise a way to replace this outdated status quo with one that rapidly builds a data-driven culture from the ground up.”

data.world’s modern catalog for data and analysis features an ecosystem of capabilities for the enterprise:

data.world’s enterprise offering builds on years of supporting the world’s largest collaborative data community. With contributors reflecting many skill sets, geographies, and use cases, data.world’s community has uniquely primed the platform to support complex enterprise data initiatives. Enterprise customers also have free, secure access to rich data from organizations like the U.S. Census, data.gov, and more, ensuring deeper, and more trusted analysis.
