Metadata Management is a key component of Data Governance initiatives. It is necessary for meeting regulatory compliance requirements, ensuring data quality and getting value from big data implementations. As more and more people are using and producing data, managing metadata is no longer just the busy work of a few isolated data management technologists–the number of data stakeholders has grown dramatically! While the need for and value of metadata management is growing, implementing it has become more complex due to the increasing diversity of data sources and stakeholders.

Who Should Attend: Enterprise Architects, Solution Architects, Data Architects, Chief Data Officers and Chief Information Officers, Data Governance Project and Program Managers, Data Stewards, Data Quality Managers, IT Implementers, Business Intelligence Program Managers and Data Warehousing Program Managers

Here are just a few of the questions that well designed metadata management practices can help to answer:

  • Who created this data?
  • What is the business definition of this data element?
  • Where is this data stored?
  • How is this data formatted? (character, numeric, date, etc.)
  • How many databases or data sources store this data?
  • What are the business rules for this data?
  • When does it need to be purged/deleted? How long should it be stored?
  • What is the security privacy levels of this data?
  • Are there regional privacy or security policies that regulate this data?
  • Where is this data used and shared?
