Why Now is the Time to Embrace Unity Catalog

Data is the cornerstone of digital transformation, and ensuring its governance, security, and accessibility is paramount to every enterprise.  

Enter Databricks Unity Catalog—the industry’s sole unified solution for data and AI governance across a multitude of cloud environments and data platforms. Since its inception, Unity Catalog has been impressing users with its core metadata, governance, security, and auditing features.  

The recent announcement of a suite of new capabilities at this year’s Data and AI Summit makes this leap even more compelling.

Unity Catalog new features and capabilities:

LakehouseIQ

LakehouseIQ, enhanced by Unity Catalog, revolutionizes your interaction with enterprise data. Standard Large Language Models (LLMs) often falter when faced with the uniqueness of every business’s datasets, jargon, and knowledge base. Recognizing these challenges, LakehouseIQ steps in as a first-of-its-kind knowledge engine that adapts to your business’s specific nuances and data intricacies. Beyond just being an AI assistant, LakehouseIQ enables all employees to search, understand, and query data using natural language. It leverages data usage patterns and organizational chart information to enhance understanding of your unique data landscape, delivering precise and insightful results. The power of LakehouseIQ lies in its ability to utilize the Databricks Lakehouse platform fully, pulling signals from Unity Catalog, dashboards, notebooks, data pipelines, and docs. This allows it to build highly accurate, specialized models tailored for your enterprise. LakehouseIQ, with Unity Catalog, thus provides a customized, AI-powered solution that truly understands and adapts to your business data environment.
