Metadata, (data about data) is an often misunderstood and vastly under-estimated challenge for most corporations. Many corporations start a Technical Metadata initiative as an after thought to a major data warehouse/business intelligence implementation and fall prey to the common Metadata Don'ts.

Metadata is a strategic corporate resource not just to reduce IT costs by implementing Technical Metadata, but also empowering business users with Business Metadata, and streamlining applications using Runtime Metadata.

Metadata is a solution to real corporate problems not just a fancy gadget to display help. Metadata can be used to address real corporate issues like:

  • Increasing IT application maintenance and development costs
  • Increasing training costs
  • Increasing application redundancy
  • Loss of corporate intellectual property
  • Poor data quality
  • Key enabler for Service Oriented Architectures
