OpenMetadata Growth and Adoption

We’re making it easier than ever to get started with the fastest-growing metadata platform. In just three years, OpenMetadata has 1,500+ enterprise deployments, 250+ community code committers, and 4,500+ GitHub stars. Our team includes the founders and PMC members of Apache Hadoop, Apache Atlas, Apache Kafka, and Uber Databook, and they built OpenMetadata for ease of use and robustness based on these experiences. OpenMetadata’s rapid growth can be connected to the value it delivers to data teams:

  • The only unified platform for all your use cases: Get complete context for your data across discovery, observability, and governance, made possible with a Unified Metadata Graph that centralizes all the metadata for all your data assets.

  • Built from the ground up for modern data teams: Open source software development, open APIs, schema-first architecture, and extensible metadata give control and customizability over how you use and understand your data.

  • Designed for simple setup, operations, and usage: The minimized architecture has only four system components, with an user experience is designed for technical and non-technical users to collaborate together.
