Age of Metadata
For the past 30 years, data teams have spent considerable time and money managing data. What they’ve come to realize that it’s nearly impossible to manage data without having a good handle on metadata.
Consequently, we are at the start of a new age: the age of metadata. Today, organizations of all sizes are kicking of data governance activities to deliver more trustworthy data and comply with emerging data regulations. At the heart of these programs is metadata. And the tool of choice to manage metadata is the data catalog.
Thus, data catalogs are fast becoming the glue that holds an organization’s data together. And since data represents the lifeblood of modern digital enterprises, a data catalog is now mission-critical technology.
“Data catalogs are fast becoming the glue that holds an organization’s data together.”
