Metadata has many roles. One is providing a path for a solid data management system. While much of the discussion around metadata focuses on understanding metadata itself along with its associated technologies, this perspective often represents a typical tool-and-technology focus, which has not achieved significant results to date. A more relevant question when considering pockets of metadata is whether to include them in the scope of organizational metadata practices.

You can learn this in the upcoming webinar brought to you by Data Blueprint. It is called Data-Ed Webinar: Metadata Strategies and is scheduled for November 10th at 2:00 p.m. EST.

By understanding what it means to include items in the scope of your metadata practices, you can begin to build systems that allow you to practice sophisticated ways to advance their data management and supported business initiatives. The speaker is Peter Aiken, Ph.D.,, a widely acclaimed top ten data management authorities worldwide.
