Last week, we had the pleasure to read this statement done by BARC in their last briefing research: “Zeenea is the Adaptive Data Catalog”. To understand the significance of this research, let’s explain who BARC is.

What did BARC say about Zeenea Data Catalog?
The research was written by Timm Grosser, BARC’s Senior Analyst for Data Management. He views Zeenea as a young and growing data catalog software provider on the market.
“Zeenea is a fairly young product and has already demonstrated quite a lot considering it has just three years of market experience and 50 customers. The company is concentrating on the core of data cataloging, thereby setting itself apart from the competition, which is becoming broader and broader from my point of view. The tool is clearly arranged for me.
The roadmap features many ML-based, innovative functions, such as improved similarity detection, pattern recognition and identifying relevant attribute values.
I think the idea and approaches have succeeded in making the data catalog grow adaptively with the company. I am of the opinion that we do not need another battleship catalog. Instead, it is important to take the company and users on a journey towards a data-centric enterprise. And this journey must be feasible. It requires consideration of the organization, the capabilities within the company, and a flexible, simple structure for catalog content. The idea is there and the first technological precautions have been taken. I’m curious to see what Zeenea will make of it.”
