What need does Select Star fulfill?

Capturing the tribal knowledge in data: Select Star automatically surfaces how data is used across an organization.  For each data asset, you can find top users, downstream dashboards, popular queries & joins, as well as similar datasets. This stays up to date without any manual maintenance. 

Understanding the impact of data changes: Select Star automatically detects and displays end-to-end column-level data lineage — from raw datasets to dashboards. You can find dependencies of a dashboard as well as the downstream impact of changes in a table.

Automated data governance & organization: You can easily tag and add context to the data for others to find and understand datasets, BI dashboards, and KPI metrics. You can tag tables or columns in bulk based on keyword, popularity, recency, or even propagate tags through the downstream column-level lineage (i.e., PII tagging).
