What is the Data Cookbook?

Your institution collects an abundance of valuable data across a variety of systems.  Unfortunately, it is not always easy to access or understand this data.  As a result, staff too often spend excessive time identifying what data exists, learning how to access data, and defining what data means. Then they have to repeat the process, because there is no easy way to record or share what they’ve already decided or learned! The Data Cookbook helps you solve these problems. Features include:

  • Business Glossary and Data Dictionary
  • Report and Data Extract Specifications
  • Report Request/Change Workflow
  • Data Governance Workflows
  • Data Systems Inventory
  • Data Quality Rules and Assessments
  • Quality Issue Resolution
  • Data Models & Schemas / Technical Metadata / Lineage
  • Collaboration with other Institutions, Vendors, and Agencies
  • Reporting Calendars, Milestones and Events
