About the Webinar
Metadata management is critical for organizations looking to understand the context, definition and lineage of key data assets. Data models play a key role in metadata management, as many of the key structural and business definitions are stored within the models themselves. Can data models replace traditional metadata solutions? Or should they integrate with larger metadata management tools & initiatives? Join this webinar to discuss opportunities and challenges around:
- How data modeling fits within a larger metadata management landscape
- When can data modeling provide “just enough” metadata management
- Key data modeling artifacts for metadata
- Organization, Roles & Implementation Considerations
