Are you looking at Collibra or ways to get more ROI from your Collibra investment? See how Datameer combines a hybrid no-code/SQL-code data transformation tool, rich data cataloging, and team collaboration to get your entire team involved in data transformation. Put data discovery, modeling, and transformation directly into your analytics workflow for faster, trusted analytics while integrating with data governance tools such as Collibra.
Collibra is a data catalog platform and tool that helps organizations better understand and manage their data assets. Collibra helps create an inventory of data assets, capture information (metadata) about them, and govern these assets. At its core, Collibra helps stakeholders understand what data assets exist, what they are made of, how they are being used, and if they are in regulatory compliance.
Collibra has four major functional areas:
Organizations typically use Collibra as a tool for IT, data owners, and officers in charge of data protection and compliance to inventory and track how data is used. Their primary objectives are to protect data, ensure it is properly governed and used, and eliminate potential fines and risk from a lack of general regulatory compliance (GDPR, CCPA, etc.) and industry-specific ones (HIPAA, AML, etc.).
Although Collibra maintains an inventory of data assets, this inventory’s primary focus is to help these teams automate processes around this data to ensure it is protected and tracked for regulatory compliance. The primary ROI customers get from Collibra is eliminating the cost of potential fines and ensuring data is protected.
Where Collibra is often NOT used is for analytics data management and analyst discovery. This is because Collibra is not integrated into their analyst workflows and forces analysts to jump around between multiple tools and data platforms to work with data.
Datameer is a powerful SaaS data transformation platform that runs in Snowflake – your modern, scalable cloud data warehouse – that combines to provide a highly scalable and flexible environment to transform your data into meaningful analytics. With Datameer, you can:
Datameer provides a number of key benefits for your modern data stack and cloud analytics, including:
If you have existing investments in tools such as Collibra, Datameer can integrate with these to share information and workflows. This helps you get even greater ROI from your Collibra investment, removes some of the burdens from IT teams, and facilitates greater, proper access to data by analysts.
Collibra would be the “inside out” tool where IT teams, data owners, and data protection personnel can capture information about data assets, govern properly, and ensure compliance. Datameer would be the data transformation platform, and support data cataloging and discovery to give analytics teams greater visibility, access, and proper use of their data models in Snowflake.
The two would meet in the middle, with Collibra feeding information about assets and applying policies into Datameer. Datameer would feed information about data transformations and data models into Collibra, as well as asset usage information. Both teams can use best-of-breed tools for their jobs, making their work faster and easier, gaining greater ROI from both platforms.
