    ๐ŸŽŸ For 1 ticket, tell us about your ideal platform needs. Explain an ideal vision for managing the ability to view data, view functionality, and manage capabilities? What are the biggest points preventing that ideal vision? I.e. Things that might be difficult to do, thing that you cannot do, or things that might be spread across multiple products.
     
    You'll get a bonus ticket ๐ŸŽŸ if you tell us what could be improved about it.

    Currently (3.5.0) it still feels like the governance piece of CP4D is like 2 different products (IGC & Watson Knowledge Catalog) merged together. e.g.
    Information Asset View and it's relationship to Default Catalog is hard to understand not to mention all the problems caused by syncing not working
    reliably.

    Tom, could you tell me more about how they feel like two different products merged together? How could we make the Information Asset view & Default Catalog relationship make more sense or be easier to understand?

    The concepts of Project vs. Catalog is not very well understood and CP4D does not do that good of a job guiding a client down the path of 1st
    collecting , organizing, and curating data (via Data Quality Project) BEFORE publishing it in a catalog to share with wider audience.  Clients I've worked
    publish data to catalogs before doing any governance work on the data resulting in catloged data that is very poor in quality and not that useful to a Data Scientist.
    An ideal platform would be one that carefully guides a user down the collect, organize, and analyze  AI ladder path and avoid having junk data be published to a catalog.
