Data Catalog

Bring semantic meaning to your data catalog to drive insight

Build an enriched view of data’s meaning and query source systems directly

What is a data catalog?

Data catalogs provide an inventory of an organization’s information assets. The catalog provides context so data stewards can discover, understand, and utilize the data they need to. Like with other data sources, however, if the data catalog is not connected to the rest of the enterprise data, you simply end up with a metadata silo that cannot provide any insight.

  • Implementing data catalogs without a strategic plan to link them to broader metadata management needs will lead to metadata silos, making them difficult to effectively manage and integrate in the longer term.

How can you transform your data catalog into a data fabric?

With Stardog’s Enterprise Knowledge Graph platform, you can bring to life the true potential of a data catalog and create a data fabric where semantically enriched data is dynamically delivered to the key parts of your business.

With traditional data catalog solutions, you only achieve greater discoverability for the data you load into the catalog. Stardog, by contrast, connects all of your data—across silos—where it is and applies semantic meaning to it. Our Virtual Graphs mean all your data can be connected regardless of its location or type. The result? A central hub where all of your data is semantically connected and mapped.

With Stardog, you can:

  • Find, integrate, catalog, and share your metadata
  • Mine structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data—simultaneously
  • Perform analytics over linked metadata 
  • Use machine learning to automate data integration
