The core features that make Select Star different from open source solutions like Amundsen and Datahub are as follows:
- To get started with Select Star, you just need to create a service account for it with the right access and it takes care of the rest.
- It’s a cloud-native, fully-hosted, and managed service that comes with SOC 2 Type 2 compliance
- Select Star automatically generates documentation offering insights into dataset popularity, data lineage, and top users. With open source solutions, you need to calculate the metrics yourself and feed them into the data catalog.
