Can your data catalog do this?
All your knowledge
data.world gives you complete context, so you actually understand the data, whether it’s in the cloud or on-prem. This includes metadata, dashboards, analysis, code, docs, project management, and social collaboration features.
Born in the cloud
We’ve been cloud-native from day one. Our multi-tenant offerings are highly available, scale bigger, perform better, and evolve faster. And as a SaaS company, we provide open and transparent pricing.
data.world is the only enterprise data catalog with a continuous release cycle. That means our platform is always getting better, and your data tools are never out of date. To access the latest features and capabilities, just refresh your browser.
Powered by a knowledge graph
data.world automatically builds a connected web of data and insights so you can explore the relationships within. Get recommendations on related assets to enrich your analysis. The more you use data.world’s patented knowledge graph technology, the smarter you and your data get.
data.world built the world’s largest open data community. Imagine what we’ve learned from hundreds of thousands of users, datasets, and interactions. This deep and unrivaled knowledge informs everything we do for enterprises, too.
The catalog that says, “I got this”
data.world is a fully managed service, born in the cloud, and optimized for modern data architectures. That means we handle all updates, migrations, and maintenance. Set up is fast and simple with a large and growing ecosystem of pre-built integrations including all of the major cloud data warehouses. When time-to-value is critical, your team needs to solve real business problems, not fight with hard-to-manage data software.
The catalog for understandable data
To tackle complex data governance and compliance challenges, you need to gain control of all your data assets, wherever they live. And with hefty million-plus-dollar fines for noncompliance, you can’t afford to wait on lengthy, costly software installs, upgrades, and patches. data.world’s SaaS data catalog is quick to deploy and easier to use, so you can inventory and understand all your data and metadata assets and act on a clear, informed data strategy.
The catalog for metadata and data management
Most data catalog software focuses on metadata management and governance. Important as those capabilities are, they don’t address the full scope of what an enterprise data catalog can and should do. Built on an enterprise knowledge graph and data virtualization platform, data.world delivers powerful search and discovery capabilities along with self-service analytics and collaboration, so your entire workforce can be data-enabled. Our catalog-as-a-service platform makes it easy for IT and business users to get more from data.
