What does Metadata really mean and how can Metadata management help my business? This session will clarify those unanswered questions. The steps you need to take to define the effects metadata has on maintaining a quality and holistic data program will be clearly outlined. Starting with how to build a framework that team members can follow and properly express requirements for corresponding categorizations. This framework is the result of several years of work within many different industries and reflects best practices with metadata.

Dr. Ron Klein plays a leading role in enabling organizations to leverage the value of information assets by providing governance, data quality and the facilities to determine what information is available, it's meaning, where it is, how it got there and how to use the information asset.

He consults, promotes and raises awareness regarding information sharing, reuse and information best practices.
