Automatically Build an Inventory of All Data Assets

Quickly Find the Relevant Data

By connecting to the firm’s systems and tools that produce, transmit, and store data, EIIG intelligently captures and ingests metadata, and automatically builds a Data Catalog of all data assets and facilitates consumption of data within the corporate data landscape.

EIIG provides a search capability for the data catalog so users can quickly find the data relevant to their needs.

Better Manage Datasets

EIIG categorizes and organizes comprehensive and searchable metadata sets in such a way that this data catalog becomes the go-to spot for users to find, expand and collaborate on their data analytics efforts, thereby empowering them to drive business initiatives, enhance performance, and accelerate execution.

Having a data catalog allows the firm to break down complexities introduced by Big Data (unstructured data), Vendor tool environments that don’t interact with each other well, siloed business units, hoarding of legacy data fearing loss of future insights etc. It also helps to quickly break down data into business relevant data or technology relevant data. This helps manage the datasets better.

Built Within Days

The EIIG Data Catalog is built within days of an engagement with Orion and is kept up to date in near real-time.

The findings from the data catalog allow changes to be made at the data sources to manage data better and/or allows to transform the data in transit in the data supply chain, thereby optimizing operations to the needs of the firm, be it migrating to a cloud, building a data lake or lakehouse, or rolling out an ERP/CRM.

In all cases Orion EIIG is the tool to get for your Data Catalog.

“We were under time pressure to show the regulators that we’re BCBS 239 compliant.  So we engaged a leading vendor who quoted two months and 150,000€. Orion blew me away when it was able to demonstrate value in less than two weeks.”
