How Chief Data Officers Can Use an Information Catalog to Maximize Business Value From Information Assets

Posted by at 08:54h

Recently Gartner published a report on how chief data officers can use an information catalog to maximize business value from information assets. The report introduces classic attempts at cataloguing data as “technically focused” and “poorly aligned with business outcomes”; to this end, Gartner suggests that companies craft modern information catalogs that “serve as a dynamic collaboration environment to enable business and technology colleagues to comment on, document, and share data.” In effect, the creation of such catalogs bridges the business and information technology sectors and enables innovation through discovery tools that analyze and optimize the data. Among the specific benefits of utilizing such tools, Gartner lists “self-generating topic extraction, taxonomy generation, semantic discovery, machine learning pattern mapping, and knowledge graphing.” More generally, the report emphasizes that Chief Data Officers can employ these tools to drive information asset management and create a data driven culture that values calculated risks and swift decision making. Gartner highlights ROKITT as a vendor of both modern information stewardship solutions for managing an information catalog and solutions for smart data discovery and governed data lakes. It should be noted that ROKITT is the only vendor listed under solutions for both information catalogs and data discovery.
