As many companies have ramped up their efforts for self-service BI, understanding and trusting the data remain key barriers to successful business intelligence. Business users need more than access to data and dashboards; they need to understand the definitions and nuances behind the numbers. Business metadata provides users the much-needed context to their data.

IT needs to be able to respond to changing business requirements by seeing the impact of changing definitions and transformations at all points in the BI lifecycle.
