Data warehousing projects are expensive - hardware, software, development costs - and their value often is vague. You put a lot of effort into finding, extracting, transforming, cleansing, and loading data into data warehouse, and need to maintain it every day, and your organization is not using its full potential. Why? Because people do not know what data exists, which tables and columns hold what data, or what is the source or calculation of fields.
Thankfully, Dataedo will provide a context around data (metadata) in your data warehouse. People working with data will know what data there is, where to look for it, and how to use it in order to turn it into value.
