Who Uses the Explorer?

Everyone! Whether you are a creator, admin, or viewer, you can find value in Validatar's data quality catalog because it shows you the current state of your data. This real-time snapshot of your data source allows you to discover potential problem areas, pinpoint critical tables and columns, and observe data movement using data lineage.

The data quality catalog isn't just about data, it's about collaboration. Is there a table whose record count has fallen out of acceptable range? Engage with your team using Discussions to further investigate the problem. Have you manually loaded a table? Let your team know so they can anticipate changes.
