The New Requirements for Metadata

Metadata is the core of all data management and use. Knowing what the data is and how to get it is necessary for using data to create value. Organizations must govern data, enable ad-hoc query, protect privacy, and follow complex regulations. Today’s cataloging processes focus on technically oriented metadata, but this does not enable modern privacy aware processes.

Unlocking data value and enabling sophisticated data techniques demand new types of metadata, and a new manner of federating that metadata across the landscape.

Join Don Watters from eBay and Nimrod Vax from BigID in a discussion of how to capture the right metadata, automate metadata cataloging, and enable data value.
