Collibra Data Intelligence Cloud update targets productivity – TechTarget

A new browser extension and enhanced data governance capabilities highlight the latest Collibra Data Intelligence Cloud update.

The vendor’s Data Intelligence Cloud is an end-to-end data management platform that automates data preparation workflow and includes data scoring capabilities to measure data quality and data governance capabilities to help customers comply with regulations. In addition, it connects to data lakes and data warehouses for data ingestion, and to analytics platforms to enable data analysis.

New capabilities

Collibra’s latest platform update, released on March 9, adds new and enhanced capabilities designed to increase user productivity.

The Collibra Everywhere browser extension connects to multiple sources, including Tableau and Power BI reports, and enables users to quickly view their data’s underlying information so they can better understand and trust their analytics.

The browser extension works with Confluence, Salesforce, Jira, ServiceNow, Snowflake, Sharepoint and online query editors.

By enabling users to quickly view underlying information, the new tool will save users the hassle of having to go back and forth between their data and a data governance application to see such information as data lineage and determine the quality of data, according to Donald Farmer, founder and principal at TreeHive Strategy.

Ultimately, that will increase users’ speed and efficiency.

“This is not just a cool feature, but a genuinely useful approach for business users who may not want to constantly switch to governance applications just to understand their data better,” he said. “It is ‘context in context.’ With this, users can quickly and effectively see information about the semantics and business context of the data they are using.”

Enriched data governance capabilities will also lead to increased productivity, according to Mike Leone, an analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group.

The latest Collibra Data Intelligence Cloud update includes two additions to Collibra Data Quality & Observability.

One adds auto-validation capabilities that enables organizations to scale data discovery and data quality enforcement measures to protect sensitive data and reduce risk. The other enables data stewards to centralize and prioritize data quality requests within Collibra Data Intelligence Cloud leading to faster remediation of data problems.

Meanwhile, the update also includes automation of data stewardship tasks, including data curation.

“By combining the new data quality and observability capabilities with the automation of stewardship tasks, I think organizations can expect some eye-opening productivity gains,” Leone said.

He added that high quality data is critical as organizations make decisions based on data, but making sure that data can be trusted is complex, especially as organizations give more business users self-service tools.

“With Collibra extending its existing automation capabilities to focus on areas like sensitive data discovery and protection, data quality enforcement and data curation at scale, data stewards are being armed with the tools they need to respond to the business faster …….
