Metadata management continues to be a powerful enabler for mission-critical data-driven business activities, including operations, analytics, and compliance. That’s because metadata is the golden thread that stitches together enterprise-wide landscapes, even those that are heavily distributed and heterogeneous, with hybrid mixes of on-premises and cloud systems.
The catch is that metadata development and analysis are notoriously manual, which makes them time consuming and resistant to change. As with all IT disciplines, metadata management needs to keep pace with the quickening pace and the opportunistic agility of modern business.
The good news is that tools and practices for metadata management are modernizing to leverage new technologies and to satisfy new business requirements. This welcome change is giving modern metadata management unprecedented speed for set up and development, comprehensive enterprise visibility, and scale for growing data volumes and source/target portfolios.
These advancements are achieved largely by infusing modern metadata management with innovative approaches to tool automation, intelligence, and new platform capabilities. This webinar will discuss many of these functions and their business impact, including:
- Intelligent tool automation – enabled by smart algorithms, embedded analytics, and modern metadata scanning
- Visibility across all disparate data – via broad connectivity for multi-vendor IT landscapes and visualizations for data lineage and impact analysis
- New platform characteristics – such as SaaS apps for metadata management and hybrid metadata repositories
