The license agreement for Collibra, the university’s data catalog tool, expires on December 22.
The current license agreement with Collibra expires on Thursday, December 22, and the system will be inaccessible beginning this date. The Data Governance team is currently exploring options to support the university’s data governance needs, though a final solution will not be announced until sometime in 2023. In the meantime, all data currently stored within Collibra will be preserved for the next tool. Additionally, users can continue to submit metadata via ServiceNow or by contacting the team at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will hold onto it until a new tool is selected.
Once a vendor has been selected to host the data catalog, an announcement will be made. Users can reach to email@example.com with any questions.

The OCIO Data and Analytics group continues to refine and improve the tools and processes it provides to Ohio State for the purpose of analyzing enterprise data—the data generated from university administrative functions (finance and supply chain, student information, human resources, payroll, and grants).
This update shares the latest developments for our current toolset which includes: the Reporting and Analytics Environment (RAE), Tableau and Collibra.
Ohio State signed an agreement with Collibra this past December, in partnership and coordination with Wexner Medical Center, Advancement, and other key data intensive units, which helps lay the foundation of the university's overall data governance strategy. See the full article for a summary of Collibra accomplishments made during the project's first phase, from January through March 2020.
In December 2019, the Enterprise Project, in coordination with Wexner Medical Center, Advancement, and other key data intensive units, purchased Collibra. The Collibra application helps to support Ohio State's understanding of data assets and rules via capabilities within data cataloging and data governance.
Collibra will act as a business glossary, data catalog and data dictionary, replacing earlier data cataloging tools Data Cookbook and Wexner Medical Center’s IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog.
