Setting up your first data catalog

One of the solutions provided by Talend Data Catalog is to capture and connect all your metadata coming from different data sources in a central data catalog.

By opening the project in the Architecture diagram view, you can see the following data sources:
  • ACME customer hub

    The MySQL database contains the reference tables and the processed purchase orders. Data from this model is used in a BI report.

  • BI reports

    The Tableau report contains ACME sporting analytics.

The arrows represent the dependencies between the models and the data movement in your information system. ACME customer hub is defined as the source model and BI reports as the target model.
In this use case, you need to:
  • Import the metadata coming from a new data source.
  • Integrate the new model in the configuration and define the data flow.
