Metadata is the most valuable tool of the Data Steward. Where the stewards get their metadata and how they participate in the process of delivering core metadata is an issue organizations have been struggling with for years. The Operational Metadata Store or OMS may be the answer.
The traditional Operational Data Store or ODS is a database designed to integrate data from numerous sources that supports business operations and then feeds that data back into the operational systems. This Real-World Data Governance webinar with Bob Seiner and a panel of industry pundits will hold a lively discussion on the practicality of creating the ODS using metadata as the data, utilizing the metadata from a variety of existing sources to operationalize your data stewards.
The session will focus on:
Identifying the most significant metadata for your organization
Identifying existing sources of metadata – known and hidden
Identifying when that metadata will be most useful to your data stewards
Defining a lifecycle that encourages data steward participation
Delivering a model that incorporates all of the above
