Metadata

Featured speakers in this track include:

 

 

Metadata is integral to every conversation we have about data, Data Quality, and Data Governance, and increasingly even to Data Analytics. The definition has evolved from “data about the data” to describing metadata as a core element of managing information assets. The things we want to know about our data, and how those things are connected together into an information model, are ALL metadata. And metadata is so much more than it had been conceived of before…it is the inventory control mechanism, the locator system, the gateway to where things are and what things mean in much larger environments. As EDW educator John Ladley says,"It is no longer an option. It is not even a deliverable. Metadata is a requirement!"
