Quest Software, a systems management, data protection and security software provider, has added a data marketplace based on the concept of ‘shop, share, and compare’ to its offerings. The data marketplace is included in version 13.0 of Quest’s erwin Data Intelligence solution, and is designed to help data users, stewards and owners find, understand, leverage and protect their organisations’ high-value and trusted data quickly and efficiently.

“Companies must be able to rely on their data to make sound business decisions,” says Heath Thompson, president and general manager at Quest Software. “We need to raise the accessibility of high-value data and AI models and make them more usable and understandable. Organisations with high quality data at their fingertips, available now with erwin Data Marketplace, will have competitive edge.”

The data marketplace is based on a data catalogue and business glossary, and provides a central location for data users to collaborate on trustworthy data and AI models, while also giving data stewards and owners strong controls for curation, governance and publication of data assets.

It includes data literacy necessary to getting the right context around data to ensure its best use, automated data value scoring, mind maps displaying asset relationships, data lineage, community ratings and reviews, and additional business context and governance guidance. Built-in task and workflow capabilities streamline data access requests and approvals for data owners, and a full audit trail of governance-related actions ensures organisations are audit ready.

Beyond erwin Data Marketplace, erwin Data Intelligence 13.0 introduces a new erwin Smart Data Connector for the Databricks Unity Catalog. This enables organisations to ingest the metadata and data lineage associated with the data, files and machine learning models kept in their Databricks Lakehouse infrastructure, adding visibility across multi-platform data landscapes and additional data intelligence capabilities.
