DSI was initiated to foster collaboration and cultural change in support of better decision making. Since DSI is about using data to make more informed decisions, we will be using IT resources as a catalyst for change. However, success will be measured not by IT deliverables, but by better decisions made.
To facilitate better decisions through DSI's products, we offer both in-person demos of products and share updates of new product features through our official newsletter.
What metadata is available?
Data Cookbook is the tool we use for capturing and storing metadata related to our Tableau dashboards and Denodo interface views. We also capture metadata called definitions that describe the individual columns, or fields, in the data sources we have built. This metadata includes the business purpose, sample values, classification attributes, technical description and logic used to populate the column. Functional area experts are involved in writing the definitions, and data managers approve the content prior to release.
