Waterline Data, The Smart Data Catalog Company, announced it was mentioned as an interpretation and discovery insight platform in Forrester’s August 2016 report, Vendor Landscape: Insights Platforms, Q3 2016.

As Forrester Research VP, Principal Analyst Brian Hopkins writes in the report, businesses need actionable insight from data more urgently than ever, but “it is easy to get lost with so many choices and appealing ‘marketecture’ diagrams.” In this report, Mr. Hopkins and his colleagues further define and differentiate vendors that offer insight platforms — combinations of data management, analytics, and insight execution.

Waterline Data empowers citizen data scientists by allowing organizations to replace manual tagging of metadata with an automated process that rapidly classifies the data assets in their data lake, including new data even as it’s created. Unlike catalogs that scan historical SQL logs, Waterline Data automatically catalogs every field of data in the data lake while capturing and learning from tribal data knowledge. With the company’s recently announced Smart Data Catalog 3.0, data engineers, data scientists and business analysts get even easier self-service access to trusted, high quality data for faster discovery, understanding, use and governance.
