Get more value from your data

In the new world of data, you can spend more time looking for data than you do analysing it. Azure Data Catalog is an enterprise-wide metadata catalogue that makes data asset discovery straightforward. It’s a fully managed service that lets you – from analyst to data scientist to data developer – register, enrich, discover, understand and consume data sources.

Your data, your way

Work with data in the tool of your choice. Data Catalog lets you find the data you need and use it in the tools you choose. Your data stays where you want it, and Data Catalog helps you to discover and to work with it where you want, with an intuitive user experience.

Tribal knowledge unlocked

Increase broad adoption and continuous value creation across your data ecosystem. Data Catalog helps you to get tips, tricks and unwritten rules into an experience where everyone can get value. With Data Catalog, everyone can contribute.
