The best practices for Data catalog are listed below:
- Assigning Ownership for the data set – Ownership of each data set must be defined. There must be a person to whom the user contacts in case of an issue. A good Catalog also must tell about the owner of any particular data set.
- Machine-Human Collaboration – After building a Catalog, the users must verify the data sets to make them more accurate.
- Searchability –The Catalog should support searchability. It enables Data Asset Discovery; data consumers easily find assets that meet their needs.
- Data Protection – Define Access policies to prevent unauthorized data access.
