Data Dictionary


Document How Your Data Works

The Collibra Data Dictionary documents your technical metadata–the data about your data–and how it is used. It describes the structure of a piece of data, its relationship to other data, and its origin, format, and use.

The Data Dictionary serves as a searchable repository for people who need to understand how and where data is stored and how it can be consumed. With it, you can also document roles and responsibilities and launch appropriate workflows to define, describe, and map data.

  • Define critical data elements and how they link to other assets
  • Visualize data flows and traceability for improved data quality

  • Map data elements and data structures to support data transformation
  • Eliminate redundant data elements and manage the addition of new elements
