Four Reasons Your Metadata Is Broken

August 11, 2016

Metadata is more important now than ever. New technologies have enabled businesspeople who have traditionally not been analysts to work with data. The consumerization of IT means people expect systems to be intuitive and require little training. With so many people using data to support so many kinds of decisions, it’s critical that your data is described, defined, and understood.

This approach decreases the flexibility of a business intelligence solution and ultimately reduces the benefit you can get from deploying self-service analytics. By changing the way you think about metadata, you can make it faster and easier for business users to make sense of their data.
