Self-service analytics is the basic use of business intelligence, along with analytical capabilities, to categorize data into simpler terms for better understanding. As stated by one of the leading providers of self-service analytics, Izenda, about 93% of the companies that used service reported faster and better insights, of which about 84% companies installed self-service analytics to reduce IT costs, need for specific expertise and unnecessary longing for answers, and reduced dependency on the IT and management informatics systems team. Thus, increasing adoption of self-service analytics has surged the demand for data catalog as the amalgamation of the two enables data mining and data understanding with ease.

Increasing Risk of Data Breaches and Rising Privacy Concerns

Data catalog is mainly used to collect metadata on the data sets that are used for analysis. There is usually a lot of personal as well as essential information stored on the data sets, further increasing the threat of data breach. NortonLifeLock Inc. reported that there were more than 3,800 publicly revealed data breaches, and nearly 4.1 billion documents were released.
