Document Operational and Analytical Databases Automatically 

Manage database metadata and quickly generate complete documentation

 

Snapshotting, analyzing, and documenting your database environment doesn’t have to be tedious and time-consuming.

 

Managing all your database and BI tools metadata for snapshot comparison, lineage and impact analysis, and documentation can be painful and time-consuming because most documentation tools lack support for handling disparate data sources and managing compliance with data privacy regulations.

 

Lack of
support for multiple technologies

Documenting SQL Server, Oracle, and other data systems and tools can be time-consuming and repetitive. Plus, importing metadata can take hours of preparation and programming if the required data providers aren’t available.

Inability to
customize the output

Tailoring output to various users, such as developers or business analysts, can be tedious without the ability to accurately annotate metadata.

Unable to
track data origin for compliance

Creating comprehensive documentation that helps your company comply with data privacy regulations (such as CASL and GDPR) requires a thorough analysis of data origin and ownership.

Manual processes can yield faulty results

Generating documentation manually is not only slow but can yield low-quality output.
