Amazon DataZone is used by customers to catalog, discover, analyze, share, and govern data at scale across organizational boundaries with governance and access controls. Today, AWS announces the general availability of a new generative AI-based capability in Amazon DataZone to improve data discovery, data understanding and data usage by enriching the business data catalog. With a single click, data producers can generate comprehensive business data descriptions and context, highlight impactful columns, and include recommendations on analytical use cases. 

With AI recommendations for descriptions in Amazon DataZone, data consumers can identify data tables and columns required for analysis, which enhances data discoverability and cuts down on back-and-forth communications with data producers. Data consumers (such as data analysts, data engineers, and data scientists) have more contextualized data at their fingertips to inform their analysis. The auto-generated descriptions enable a richer search experience, as search results are now also based on detailed descriptions, possible use cases, and key columns. The launch adds support for APIs that data producers can use to programmatically generate descriptions for assets. 

Amazon DataZone AI recommendations for descriptions is generally available in Amazon DataZone domains provisioned in the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo).
