Data Catalog

The Data Catalog is the source of truth regarding all of your data assets. It allows you to discover and understand your data assets, making it easy to:

  • Identify unhealthy assets and troubleshoot issues
  • Look for specific assets
  • Onboard new team members
  • See a breakdown of your assets across various dimensions (technologies, health, usage, etc.)

Sifflet Data Catalog

Assets that show up on the Data Catalog page depend on the domain selected in the dropdown menu at the top right end corner of the page.

Asset list

The list shows all data assets that correspond to the applied search and filters. By default, there are 50 items per page - this number can be customised.

For each single asset, you can see your asset:

  • Technology
  • Type
  • Name
  • Description, which can be automatically extracted from your data source and/or manually edited by your team on Sifflet
  • Quality status
  • Tags
  • Data source name
  • Data usage
