We are living in a generation where nearly everything is automated, simplified and made to enable us to do what we do better. However, when it comes to BI metadata management, we have not yet seen technology that significantly transform the way BI groups work on their daily tasks. What we have seen are proprietary tools that support only a single BI platform, that usually have a narrow view of metadata and are distributed by a proprietary so¬ware provider. Moreover, in today's business setting we still scramble to find the right information in conflicting reports, where limited visibility and control of metadata make it extremely di icult for businesses to make quick and accurate decisions. Today's progression in data management revolves around data governance and e ective access to metadata the frame of reference giving data its context and meaning. Metadata governance provides a comprehensive view into the flow of data, the ability to perform impact analysis, a common business terminology and accountability for the terms and definitions with accurate audit trails for compliance. In this context, metadata management becomes an important capability, enabling IT to oversee changes while delivering trusted data in a complex data integration environment.
