Key Performance Indicators (KPI)

Admins can define the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and set goals within OpenMetadata to work towards better documentation, ownership, and tiering. These goals are based on data assets and driven to achieve targets within a specified timeframe. For example, Admins can set goals to have at least 60% of the entities documented, owned and tiered by the end of Q4 2023.

The data insights feature in OpenMetadata helps organizations to decentralize documentation and ownership of data assets. Organizations can drive the adoption of OpenMetadata by setting up company-wide KPIs to track the documentation, ownership, and tiering of data assets.

OpenMetadata currently supports the following KPI Categories.

Completed Description: This KPI measures the description coverage of your data assets in OpenMetadata. You can choose an absolute (number) or a relative (percentage) value.

Completed Ownership: This KPI measures the ownership coverage of your data assets in OpenMetadata. You can choose an absolute (number) or a relative (percentage) value.

When OpenMetadata is set up with data ingestion from third party sources, the details on the description, ownership, and tiering are also brought into OpenMetadata. You can track the existing documentation and ownership coverage and work towards a better data culture by setting up data insights. Configure the KPIs and set goals at an organizational level to encourage your team to get your data to a better state.
