Data Taxonomy
Data Taxonomy
in
The Data Supply Chain

A classification system for your data that allows you to assign specific categories to each record within your dataset. A well-designed taxonomy helps you and your organization rigorously track what data you have, or could have, and also helps organize your metadata.

Before we had a clear data taxonomy, we had so many redundancies and gaps in our data catalog. Now that the categories and tags are standardized, it's much easier to know what data we have and what we still need to collect.
