What is a Smart Data Catalog? And why it isn't only about machine learning

About the Paper

The idea of a Smart Data Catalog has been around for a few years in metadata management-related literature. Although it has no official definition, the general consensus is that a modern data catalog must have machine learning and AI to unlock its potential.

In this piece, we will attempt to define how Zeenea handles the idea of the Smart Data Catalog which, for us, cannot be limited to machine learning and AI capabilities. It should rather include a range of smart technological and conceptual features.

Hence, we have identified 5 areas in which a data catalog can be "Smart" - most of which do not involve machine learning:
  • Metamodeling
  • The data inventory
  • Metadata management
  •  The search engine
  • User experience
