Building the Managed Meta Data Environment

by David Marco


Effectively Meta Data Management is no longer an option, but an absolute requirement for corporations and government agencies. Companies have realized that without Meta Data their IT departments cannot manage their systems and their systems are not providing true value to the Business end user. Organizations are implementing managed Meta Data environments (MME) to provide them an Enterprise Meta Data Management solution.

This practical course leverages the lessons learned from companies that have successfully deployed MMEs. The case studies demonstrate the importance of having a methodology for defining Meta Data requirements, capturing and integrating Meta Data, MME architectural components, how to calculate ROI, form a team, and develop a project plan, advanced Meta Data architectures, pulse-of-the-market analysis of Meta Data integration tool vendors, methodology for defining an attainable project scope, presentation of the Data Stewardship Framework, and a granular walkthrough of a detailed Meta Data model.
