data.world is the modern catalog for data and analysis. It activates the hidden data workforce within your enterprise, multiplies your data value, and creates a faster data-driven culture. The modern, intuitive user experience brings together employees of all roles, backgrounds, and skills to collaborate while keeping the data connected to everything people need to find, understand, and use. As a result, your data, analysis, and expertise become more discoverable, trustworthy, and reusable.
