Metadata is a critical component of business, as it is the information about the data stored in an organization's systems. If a company is attempting to use data effectively, it must fully understand the metadata that supports that data. This requires a strategy and repository for metadata. A metadata strategy and repository are things that most organizations do not currently have.

This presentation will offer a methodology for creating and implementing a metadata strategy, and a low cost, quick and effective implementation of a metadata repository based upon actual experiences of the presenter at several companies. The attendee will gain an understanding of the importance of metadata, the various types of metadata, metadata's role in the data-information-knowledge continuum, and a plan for instituting a metadata strategy within their organization. This is a hands-on presentation that will demonstrate how to develop and implement an effective metadata repository and strategy for less than $50,000 and deliver it in three to five months. I have been successful doing this at two employers: CIGNA and Amerihealth Caritas Family of Companies.

In this lively presentation you will learn:

  • The foundation of sharing data assets across the entire organization
  • How to develop a recognition of the value of data and its components
  • How to develop a map for managing expanding information requirements
  • How to develop and implement a low cost metadata repository solution in three to five months and for less than $50K
  • How to measure the value of information
  • The importance of central data administration to an organization
  • The importance of business user direct access and authority for documenting and enhancing metadata
  • A method for addressing data quality, data integrity, and data reuse
  • An overview of Information Stewardship and the business/IS relationship
