Data Profiling

Currently, Dataedo scans only metadata of your databases - their internal data dictionaries. We are currently building something completely different - Data Profiling module that will allow you to look into the actual data int stored in the tables analyzing how many null, empty, distinct values there are in each field, what are the min, max and average values and list most popular values. This information can be saved (but does not have to be) in the repository and easily accessible in Web Catalog and Desktop, making it even easier for everyone to understand the tables and columns.

Reference Data Management / Lookups

Reference data, list of values, lookups, dictionaries, data domains. This feature will allow you to build lookups, list and valid values. It will be easy to document and understand that "A" in status field means "Approved", or what values to expect in the market field.

You will be able to build those dictionaries from values from the database with Data Profiling feature.

Authentication, SSO, Permissions in the Web

We are researching options for authentication and single sign on to the Web Catalog, integration with Active Directory and Okta, and database/table access control.

Data Lineage

Data Lineage will allow everyone in your organization to grasp how data flows through the ecosystem. This data lineage will be defined manually on the object level.

Dataedo Online Docs

Dataedo will be entering the cloud era and making it easier than ever to export and share their database documentation. Our users will soon be able to securely publish their documentation on our website and provide access to specified users.
