About the Webinar
Good systems development often depends on multiple data management disciplines. One of these is metadata. While much of the discussion around metadata focuses on understanding metadata itself along with associated technologies, this comprehensive issue often represents a typical tool-and-technology focus, which has not achieved significant results. A more relevant question when considering pockets of metadata is whether to include them in the scope of organizational metadata practices. By understanding metadata practices, you can begin to build systems that allow you to exercise sophisticated data management techniques and support business initiatives.
- How to leverage metadata in support of your business strategy
- Understanding foundational metadata concepts based on the DAMA DMBOK
- Guiding principles & lessons learned
