Objectives and solution

Our approach

Recently, the amount and variety of data available to us has become overwhelming. There is more and more data inside companies and available external data. There is a growing variety of IT systems that contain data used to analyze and create data-driven processes and products. The task of finding suitable data is not very trivial. At the same time, completely different entities can be hidden under one name.

For many employees, especially beginners, finding the data they need often turns into a real quest. At the same time, the time of qualified personnel working with data is not cheap.
The MOSAIC data catalog helps to solve the problem of collecting information about data, classifying them and describing them for easy search and use.

MOSAIC Data Catalog Version 2 will be available soon
