What is most valuable?

* It has good integration with other platform products * Imports data domains and profiles created with other tools of the suite, such as analysts and developers

How has it helped my organization?

It forced the organization to a more extensive and deeper profiling of data. We got a better understanding of our data, which also helped the startup of MDM projects.

What needs improvement?

The interface design needs improvement. Sometimes it’s a bit cumbersome. It could be more uniform with other tools such as analyst, including organization and functionality.
