Collibra Announces Acquisition of SQLdep
NEW YORK and BRUSSELS, July 10, 2019 — Collibra, the data intelligence company, today announced the acquisition of SQLdep, a leading SaaS provider of automated data lineage. The acquisition of SQLdep will empower data citizens to uncover faster and deeper insights from their data.
SQLdep automates the discovery and visualization of technical data lineage and enables organizations to better capture context around data, understand data quality, support compliance initiatives and increase trust.
“Organizations are challenged with managing thousands of data sets scattered across the enterprise, both on-premise and in the cloud,” said Jim Cushman, Chief Product Officer for Collibra. “With this volume of data, understanding data lineage is a critical first step in the data intelligence journey, and our acquisition of SQLdep will help organizations build trust in, and unlock the value of, their data.”
SQLdep’s automated data lineage functionality will complement Collibra Catalog and Collibra’s privacy offerings. With SQLdep’s automated lineage diagrams, users can understand how data sets are built and aggregated, what each set means, and which sets can be trusted to be leveraged for business decisions. Users can make use of this enriched context as they shop for the right data set for the right purpose.
“We built SQLdep to automate and simplify the discovery of data lineage and help companies better capture the context around their data, comply with regulations, and innovate their technology stack,” said Martin Masarik, CEO for SQLdep. “Now, together with Collibra, our capabilities will allow business users to quickly surface insights by pinpointing the optimal data sets using data sourced from anywhere in the enterprise.”
The integration of SQLdep with Collibra’s current offerings will advance the company’s platform strategy by enabling more data citizens to maximize the value of their data. Collibra will also expand its European presence, acquiring SQLdep’s operations and development hub in Prague.
