You hear a lot about the use of data and analytics in the business world. Many organizations describe themselves as being data-driven, and an increasing number of companies are hiring data experts such as chief data officers.

That’s where data catalogs become relevant.

Key insights from the research? Most organizations are planning to shift from data lake catalogs where the information is all in one place to enterprise data catalogs, where it can be in any environment.
