Trends in Data and Metadata Management

This talk will present the results of a research project focused on measuring the maturity of data management practices. The talk will describe the data management survey itself and the practical uses of findings. The findings will assist the listener in understanding:

  • the reasons why CASE tool usage has stagnated,
  • specific motivations for addressing information quality challenges,
  • inherent inefficiencies in current approaches to data warehousing and ERP implementations, and
  • the industry-wide lack of “mature” approaches to data management.
