Your Window Into the EDW


Atlas is a web-based, user-friendly index of metadata stored in the EDW. Information about columns is generally loaded from source-system data dictionaries and enhanced by subject-matter experts. Use Atlas to search, browse, and analyze that data.

Discover Information within the EDW

A keyword search combs each data mart, table, and column in the metadata repository to show:

  • The source and lineage of data
  • How often it’s updated
  • Data examples, samples, and types
  • Descriptions of the physical data tables and columns
  • Any known data quality issues
  • Contact information for data stewards

Curate the Data

Atlas’s wiki-style contribution model encourages users to:

  • Add notes about data and data sources
  • Review and refine metadata in the EDW
  • Create and edit descriptions for objects in the data warehouse
  • Make comments
  • Create a self-sufficient community

Track the Most Up-to-Date Data

Data in the EDW updates daily. RSS feeds alert you to changes.

Manage Access Rights

Data stewards – subject-matter experts in a particular data mart – manage access rights, evaluate and improve data quality, and answer questions about the data.
