Data Governance & Catalogs

Rules, policies & ownership of data need to be agreed upon when setting up Data Governance. However, this is immensely difficult to do on a very detailed technical level. Focusing on business entities and structures first helps drive the implementation and adoption of these initiatives.

Entity definitions

Identify and define your core data entities

Ellie gives your the tools and frameworks to drive conversations across your organization, identify the core entities within the domains, and find out what data is available about them with ease.


Relationship maps

Map out your data assets

A picture is worth a thousand words! Ellie lets you create a visual representation of what data there is across your organization on a higher level, and lets you easily see the relations and connections between different data items. As a result, understanding data becomes much easier for everyone across the company, which makes data discussions easy, and helps you set up your data governance fast.


High-level visibility

Focus on content, not on tech

Technical details can become a huge distraction when you are trying to understand the fundamentals of your company and how it should operate in terms of data. Instead of focusing on the technical metadata and driving your conclusions from system-level details, Ellie helps you stick to the basics and get critical things done right, which often can be different from how things are technically done currently.


Human-friendly data catalogs

Avoid drowning in details

Ellie gives data consumers access to the business context, also known as contextual metadata, or information on how business and data structures relate to each other in the real world. This makes it easier for your data consumers to get familiar with your data operations, without having to drown in rows of technical metadata that can get confusing.
You can think of Ellie as a human-friendly Data Catalog, where anyone from the organization, not just data people, can easily understand how things are working.

Ellie makes complex data modeling simple

Never before have IT and Business stakeholders collaborated in such an effective way. Forget about legacy data modeling tools and embrace the future of business-driven data modeling.
