Discovery Hub®

Operational Data Exchange (ODX) builds your data lake:

In the ODX, connect to data from all sources by gathering data in its raw form, without any data manipulation or cleansing. The strength in this approach is the ability to connect to ever-growing and ever-changing data from many sources. In the end, all data is in one place, with all users using one source to access raw data.

Build a Modern Data Warehouse (MDW) from ODX data

In the MDW, data is improved, enriched and consolidated. With the MDW, data quality issues can be resolved one time. Similar data from different systems can be rationalized to create golden records. The MDW also preserves historical data as data and source systems change over time.

Semantic Models offer consistent data access to casual users

With Discovery Hub® Semantic Models, governed models are defined once to deliver data in the right form and context to any visualization tool, including: Power BI, Tableau and Qlik, making it easy for all users to understand the data they work with. Because there is a shared data model, all users see the same data regardless of visualization tool. By generating semantic models, Discovery Hub® helps future-proof your data management strategy, with the ability to support multiple visualization tools or easily switch between them.

Discovery Hub® helps companies build a modern data estate by accelerating and automating the construction and maintenance of data stores for analytics and AI. It connects to almost any data source, allowing you to catalog, model, move, transform and document your analytics data.
