About the Company: Mayer founded Castor in 2020 with Xavier de Boisredon, Castor and other data catalogs are collections of metadata, data management, and search tools designed to help users find the data that they need within an organization. Data catalogs also serve as inventories of available data, providing information to evaluate whether data is a good fit for a particular application. Castor provides data discovery tools aimed at helping users understand the context around data. Targeting use cases like streamlining data compliance projects and cloud migration, Castor connects to cloud data warehouses including Snowflake, BigQuery, Redshift, and business intelligence tools such as Looker, Tableau, and Metabase to automatically create and update documentation that employees can refer to when they have data-related questions.
