Introducing Collibra Data Notebook


We’re excited to announce a new addition to the Collibra platform: Collibra Data Notebook. This innovative capability is the result of our acquisition of Husprey and represents a significant step forward in empowering data citizens to work more efficiently and collaboratively within Collibra.

In today’s data-driven landscape, organizations are grappling with increasing data volumes and the proliferation of siloed tools. Data scientists, analysts and engineers are often hindered by the need to navigate disparate systems to find and query the data they require for critical business initiatives. Even after locating data within their data catalogs, they often find themselves uncertain if it truly meets their requirements due to limited visibility into its contents. Moreover, the inefficiencies and frustrations arising from the need to switch between different tools for querying and gathering additional information only compound these difficulties.

Collibra Data Notebook: Query and collaborate around data

Introducing Collibra Data Notebook: a tool enabling you to query and gain additional insights into your data — directly within your governed Collibra environment. 

Beyond its querying capabilities, Data Notebook also enables ad-hoc data visualization alongside relevant context from Collibra Data Catalog to further enhance data understanding. Additionally, with a user-friendly text editor, you can easily document approaches and best practices that you can share across teams via data notebook assets that link directly to the data.

With Collibra Data Notebook, you can:

  • Query various governed data sources, including Snowflake, Google BigQuery, Databricks, and Postgres, directly from Collibra, utilizing existing credentials and permissions.
  • Create and publish data notebooks as assets, enabling the sharing of SQL queries, data visualizations, documented approaches, and valuable insights, making it easier to collaborate around data.
  • View useful context from Collibra Data Catalog alongside queries, making writing SQL queries faster and easier. 
  • Transform the results of your SQL queries into a variety of chart types with just one click to help quickly spot anomalies and trends. 
  • Share and reuse SQL queries via the query history so data teams don’t have to write them from scratch.
