We understand the metamodel and possible customisations
We know the pitfalls to avoid when setting up information in the tool
We can advise on wider metadata and governance practices
If you’re new to Collibra, it can be daunting to get it all set up. We can review your requirements, work out what you need, and help you set stable foundations for your future usage of the tool.
If you’ve been using Collibra for a while, you may find you’re not using it as effectively as you could. We can review your platform, metamodel and content, and develop a plan to get everything working smoothly.
Even when Collibra’s set up to your satisfaction, it can be easy to get into bad habits over time. We can carry out regular audits, up to four per year, to keep you on the right track for the long term.
Wherever you are with Collibra we can support you. Whether you need high-level one-off advice or regular ongoing guidance, we can help you use Collibra to efficiently manage your data.
A Big UK Bank had adopted Collibra as their Metadata tool, and were successfully using the Data Catalogue functionality to store their data elements and definitions, but hadn’t reflected their processes in the Workflows. Data Assets weren’t progressing through the lifecycle from ‘candidate’ to ‘approved’, so users lacked confidence using them.
The Chief Data Office team wanted to define their processes, set up the related Workflows, and understand the pros and cons of Collibra customisation.
Reviewed their Collibra implementation to understand existing customisations
Documented current and target state for their critical processes
Clearly defined roles & responsibilities, process steps and dependencies
Improved knowledge of how to set up, edit and maintain Workflows
Clarified the Data Asset lifecycle status, driving more confidence in their use
