The Many Faces of Metadata Management

March 20, 2019

Metadata is “data about the data,” and managing it correctly can improve data transparency and accessibility while helping organizations track and understand data lineage and improve data governance. Good metadata also gives users more confidence in BI reports and analytics. Unfortunately, TDWI research finds that most organizations still acquire and manage metadata manually and haphazardly using methods that are slow and do not scale. In addition, there is confusion about the differences between metadata repositories, data catalogs, and business glossaries. The good news is that understanding and applying better metadata management to your organization’s data management and integration practices can help with BI reporting, analytics, data governance, migration, and regulatory adherence.
