Data Catalog user features

Use Pentaho Data Catalog

Part Number

This article describes the Pentaho Data Catalog user interface and the tasks non-admin users can perform. Before proceeding, make sure that a Data Catalog service user or administrator has set up your catalog for you. Data Catalog builds a complete inventory of data assets in a data warehouse, automatically and securely. It provides:

  • exact data discovery and faster delivery to an authenticated user.
  • better understanding of data quality at a glance.
  • an inventory of all assets for efficient data repository governance.

Data Catalog complements data visualization, data discovery, and data wrangling tools by streamlining the collection and initial data quality checks of the data repository, and making the data repository available to those tools for further processing.
