Watch the Developer Live Event to get a hands-on experience on how OCI Data Catalog helps you gain insight into the data you have in Oracle Cloud and beyond.
Harvest metadata from data sources across the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure ecosystem and on-premises to create an inventory of data assets. This helps data consumers easily find the data they need for analytics.
Harvest technical metadata and gain insight into data in OCI Object Storage, Oracle Autonomous Database, and more.
OCI Data Catalog harvests metadata from systems in private networks and on-premises, providing more expansive access to data.
Utilize on-demand or schedule-based automatic harvesting to ensure the data catalog always has up-to-date information.
Data engineers running Spark workloads in OCI Data Flow service can use OCI Data Catalog’s metastore as the central repository for metadata about the databases, tables, and partitions represented by files in an OCI Object Storage data lake. This helps increase reuse and collaboration with improved semantic consistency.
With search, data consumers can gain details on data assets to see whether they are fit for use. Additional details of different data objects are also available for further exploration.
Data consumers can search based on technical names, business terms, and tags, and use filters to find objects of interest.
Through browsing, data consumers can easily locate data in the system hierarchy of available data sources, folders, files, and more.
Data stewards can manage enterprise glossaries with categories, subcategories, and business terms to build a taxonomy of business concepts. Other users can contribute their knowledge in the form of tags to make search more productive.
OCI Data Catalog is fully managed by Oracle and runs with all the power and scale of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Benefit from all of the security, reliability, performance, and scale of Oracle Cloud while using OCI Data Catalog.
Using REST APIs and SDKs, developers can integrate OCI Data Catalog’s capabilities in their custom applications.
Using a trusted system for managing user identities and access privileges, administrators can control access to data catalog objects and capabilities to manage security requirements.
"OCI Data Catalog will dramatically improve how our end users automate metadata harvesting, perform data discovery, and understand data in the data lake and data warehouse."
