About the Webinar

Business vocabularies, glossaries and dictionaries are an imperative part of improving organizational understanding of their most important data. The metadata in these resources must meet stakeholder’s requirements from a content and quality perspective. The metadata must be governed.

This Real-World Data Governance webinar, with Bob Seiner and a special guest, will cover several components of implementing Metadata Governance specifically focused on business vocabulary, glossaries, data dictionaries and data catalogs. Bob will share his experience as a repository administrator and provide detailed requirements for tools that will help you govern the metadata and data.

In this webinar Bob and his guest will discuss:

  • Value add from vocabulary, glossaries and dictionaries
  • Metadata that populates each of these data stores
  • Responsibilities for governing metadata
  • Applying governance to metadata processes
  • Requirements for tools associated with governing metadata
