About the Oracle Integration

Oracle is a cloud-based metadata management tool that helps users discover, understand, and govern data assets across an organization. It provides a single platform for managing metadata from various sources such as databases, data lakes, and applications.

How does the Secoda and Oracle connection work

Secoda provides an automated solution to help create a single source of truth based on Oracle metadata. It provides a comprehensive data cataloging and tagging service to give users a complete picture of their Oracle environment with unified terminology, up-to-date documentation, and streamlined search tools. It automates the manual process of discovering, profiling, and enriching Oracle metadata which allows users to quickly understand and manage their Oracle environment, providing transparency and accountability for their stakeholders. By combining powerful data profiling with automated tagging and documentation, Secoda enables users to quickly find and access the information they need in a fraction of the time. This results in an up-to-date source of knowledge that can be easily understood, ensuring accuracy and consistency throughout the organization. Secoda’s solutions create ease and efficiency, allowing users to get the most out of their Oracle environment and make the best use of their data.

How to see Oracle data lineage

Secoda can create data lineage for this integration by first capturing the data movement between the integrated components, such as tables and procedures, etc. Then, tracing the origin of the data streams and the transformations that each of the components make to the data from its initial source. This will help to create lineage across systems in an integrated environment, allowing users to view their data's origin, the path it takes, and which systems are used.

Create a data dictionary for Oracle

Creating a data dictionary for Oracle involves several steps. First, document the data elements, their definitions, data types, size, nullability or default values, units of measure, and any other pertinent information. Once the data elements and their definitions are documented, create tables to store the data. When creating the tables to store the data, ensure that all tables are created with primary and foreign key relationships. Finally, use the database platform's security framework to secure the data dictionary. This last step is extremely important to prevent unauthorized access. For example, when using Oracle, use database user roles and database resource privileges such as SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE to restrict access to the appropriate users. The data dictionary should also be regularly maintained to ensure it is up to date and secure.

Share Oracle knowledge with everyone at your company

Secoda is an excellent resource for companies to utilise for sharing Oracle knowledge with all staff. We provide a knowledge sharing platform that allows employees to curate, ask and answer questions and collaborate in real-time. Our platform helps companies create learning portals with structured content which can be tagged according to topics. This helps to ensure that all employees have access to the same Oracle knowledge and information. Furthermore, Secoda also makes it easy to invite experts, whose profiles are accurately displayed, to provide their expertise and answer questions. This helps to ensure that employees always have the right information at their fingertips and can access it quickly, helping the whole company stay up to date on Oracle.

Create a single source of truth based on Oracle metadata

Secoda's advanced Metadata Management capabilities provide organizations with the ability to create a single source of truth, based upon Oracle metadata, for all of their Oracle-related activities. This enables users to quickly answer questions about their data, such as where it is stored, who has access to it, and how it is used. The single source of truth also helps to streamline operations and eliminate redundant data sources across multiple applications and databases, reducing operational costs and increasing efficiency. In addition, Secoda's Oracle metadata managed services provide the ability to quickly detect and mitigate security issues, in order to protect clients from potential data breaches. Finally, Secoda offers an extensive library of Oracle metadata semantics, allowing clients to gain insight into the meaning of their data within their existing Oracle metadata.
