The increasing popularity of data analytics comes together with the many approaches, methods, algorithms, and tools used in different tasks of analytics. When facing a new example of an application of analytics methods with its particular requirements, it would be useful to have an open repository where the experience of the use of different analytical tools is amalgamated. This research in progress paper presents the first results and challenges in the creation of such a repository. The challenges are related to variability in classification, granularity, field of application, purpose of research and other factors. The proposed structure of the repository meets these challenges to some extent and builds the foundation for further development of the repository.
