About the Webinar

Business glossaries, data dictionaries, and data catalogs are valuable tools that enable organizations to drive active value from the definition, production, and usage of their data. These tools house metadata including the inventory, business and technical context, stewardship, rules, and understanding of your data. These tools, when successfully deployed, enable discovery, protection, confidence, improved decision-making, and the list goes on.

Join Bob Seiner for this instructive webinar where he will address how to govern the tools and the metadata in your glossary, dictionary, and catalog. Formal accountability for metadata sounds like a scary proposition; however, recognizing and deploying the natural metadata stewards is a necessary part of gaining consistent value from your metadata.

In this webinar, Bob will talk about:

  • Populating the business glossary, data dictionary, and data catalog
  • What it means to govern the tools and the metadata
  • Formalizing accountability for metadata
  • The impact of ungoverned tools and metadata
  • Gaining consistent value from the glossary, dictionary, and catalog
