More data, more tools, more people = more data catalogs
At Castor, we believe the first step to structure the data catalog market, is more transparency. For that reason, we put up a list of all the catalog tools we heard of.
Companies are deploying their analytics to more people in the company. Now, regardless of data literacy, most departments of large companies are using data. For that reason, there's a need to improve trust and understanding in data resources and infrastructure.
This explains the recent explosion in the past two years of data catalogs (internal, open-source, and SaaS). This new trend is not going to stop, and we'd rather bring visibility and structure soon.
- Specialization: Data Catalog Only Tools vs Data Catalogs integrated into a larger offering
- Optimized for: Mid-Market vs Enterprise
- Main Use-Case: Compliance vs Analysts Productivity
