Meta Data Special Interest Group Event

Marketing and Value of Metadata

  • Does your organization realize value from managing metadata about its data?
  • How has managing metadata been marketed to business and I.T. users?
  • Do business people have access to (accurate) business definitions and rules about their data?
  • What impact has the current regulatory climate had on your organization’s inclination to assign resources to managing metadata?

Come and hear four panellists with many years experience in the metadata management field present on their experience with marketing its value to the business and I.T. communities who use it. The presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion on the topic, where attendees can ask questions and also share about their own experience on this topic. Katrina Easton is our moderator.
