Collibra, the Brussels expert in data governance, has taken over the Czech SQLdep. It specialises in the automated discovery and visualisation of the life cycle of datasets.

SQLdep helps organizations to better understand the context and quality of their data, as well as to support compliance and increase trust in the data. It does this by automatically mapping the entire life cycle of the data.

Organizations face the challenge of managing thousands of datasets across the enterprise, both on-premises and in the cloud,” said Jim Cushman, Chief Product Officer at Collibra. With this amount of data, insight into the data lineage is a crucial first step in the development of data intelligence.

Insight into data

SQLdep’s technology will complement Collibra’s Catalogue and Collibr’s privacy offerings. SQLdep’s visualizations allow users to better understand how their datasets are composed, what each set means and which sets can be trusted to make business decisions.

Together with Collibra, our capabilities enable business users to quickly gain insights by locating the optimal data sets using data from across the enterprise, concludes Martin Masarik, CEO of SQLdep.

European enlargement

With the acquisition of SQLdep’s operational hub in Prague, Collibra is further expanding its presence in Europe. The Brussels scale-up, and the first Belgian unicorn, already has offices in Belgium, France, Poland, the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States.
