As Hadoop deployments scale and data proliferates, the complexity around data management grows. More data from different sources gets loaded into the system. It has varying structures, schemas, access patterns and security restrictions. At the same time, there are different users that need to interact with the data in different ways. Administrators need to ensure that users have correct access and that security is properly enabled; data managers need to perform governance and audits of the system for regulatory compliance; and analysts, data scientists, and other users need an easy way to find out what data is available to them, where it came from and what it looks like in order to use it effectively to gain insights that drive decisions. Cloudera Navigator is designed to address these challenges.
