Rely on data governance and cataloging to become a data-centric organization

Your needs

Your organization generates and collects an increasing volume and variety of data assets, from inside and outside the business. To gain a clear view of all your data assets you need to store them in a smarter way to enable effective sharing and reuse. Becoming data-centric begins with deploying data portals to help you create a complete data catalog of all assets that meets robust data governance policies, guaranteeing quality and consistency.

Create a modern data catalog for trusted data access with Opendatasoft’s data portal solution

Build a business-focused data inventory accessible to all

Traditional data catalog solutions are static, technical inventories of data and metadata that don’t provide direct access to the data, preventing data centricity. By contrast, choosing a centralized data portal provides you with next generation capabilities, transforming your data catalog into an intuitive, usable and comprehensive platform. This enables your data assets to be easily discovered, accessed and shared, driving greater reuse and fueling an innovative, data-centric culture in your organization.

Allow all users to confidently discover and reuse your data for increased collaboration and sharing

Your data can be scattered across the organization and wider ecosystem, making it hard for users to discover and use it with confidence. To overcome this, your data portal creates a centralized catalog of all your data assets, from datasets to dashboards, with powerful, intuitive search and navigation that enables every user to quickly and confidently find the right data asset for their needs.

Embed data governance inside your data portal management

Ensure your data governance rules guarantee that data assets are high-quality, reliable, clearly understandable, and only accessible by the right people. Unlock real value from your data by closely integrating your data portal with your data governance strategy, making it concrete through clear, personalized user and data management, access rights and permissions, delivering confidence to users and enforcing your corporate standards.
