Pain points

Onboarding to data

Every time a newcomer joins a data team, one faces a challenge of data management processes learning. Unfortunately, it may provoke overcommunication, reading irrelevant documentation and spending much time to pick out meaningful information. ODD solutions help figure out data sources, find owners of this data, check DBs structures and get many other attributes that are necessary for working activities.

Data discovery

The more data a team has the more complicated connections occur between assets and components. ODD provides a search tool with AI-powered suggestion and flexible filters. Also the Platform supports a description option, so you can get detailed info about data entities.
