What tools do you provide for metadata management?
Response: The Catalyst platform includes a Metadata Management set of tools in the Atlas application. Atlas is Catalyst’s web-based metadata management tool. Atlas stores, searches and displays metadata, including data mart, table, and column descriptions for both the source systems and source marts. Data architects use Atlas to manage and manipulate the metadata that is critical to the operation of the Catalyst EDW.
Atlas includes a Google-like search capability that allows users to search all metadata for terms and returns exact lexical matches as well as similar text matches found in the metadata system.
In addition, Atlas manages the metadata for the mapping of tables and columns from source systems to source marts in the data warehouse. As such, it is a critical tool for the development and maintenance of Source Marts. Click here to learn more about Atlas.
