The Data Catalog for Cloud Migration
One of the biggest factors to the success and speed of your cloud migration is data governance. Whether you lift and shift, lift and improve, or opt to deploy new workloads to the cloud, it’s critical that data access, policies, and metadata remain consistent throughout the process. data.world’s enterprise data catalog can help ensure business continuity and visibility at every stage of the migration process.

Inclusive data enablement
The goal of data governance should be to guide and enable your data workforce, not restrict and contain it. Agile Data Governance empowers all stakeholders to participate in an inclusive data and analytics process by increasing productivity in a safe, consistent, and auditable way. Integrating this practice into your cloud migration ensures quick access to clear, usable, and reliable data, regardless of where you are on your cloud migration journey.
Metadata as a Knowledge Graph
Modernizing your data stack means understanding the current data systems, how they are related to each other, and how they are related to business processes. These relationships should be represented as a graph. Built on a knowledge graph, data.world enables you to catalog any type of on-prem data, and by representing the metadata as a graph, identify critical nodes that are bottlenecks that should be addressed in your cloud migration.
Understand your data
Data lineage empowers data producers to understand the current state of data pipelines in your on-prem environment. data.world with Eureka™ gives your team the confidence to make timely and accurate decisions around data and its corresponding services that need to be migrated.
Query across data sources: on-prem and cloud
While your data infrastructure needs to continually evolve to meet the needs of the organization, this shouldn’t mean that your users need to live in a constant state of tool fatigue. data.world makes it easy to connect to and query live data across disparate on-prem and cloud sources via data virtualization and federated query. This makes comparing new and old sources and data models easy, building trust and confidence.
