Data lakes are data stores that hold unstructured and semi-structured data. Structured data stores (usually relational databases) offer view into data structures (tables and columns). Data lakes do not offer that functionality. Without data governance data lakes can quickly become data swamps. Finding right data in the data lake and understanding its structure can be a real challenge.
Thankfully, Dataedo offers discovery of structure in semi-structured data formats, cataloging of data objects, documentation capability of each object and field, and discoverability with convenient web documentation.
All it takes to get started is to point to the file or paste its content into editor - Dataedo will scan the structure and load it into editor where you will be able to correct it, describe it and save as a new object to the repository.
