Good systems development often depends on multiple data management disciplines that provide a solid foundation. One of these is metadata. While much of the discussion around metadata focuses on understanding metadata itself along with its associated technologies, this perspective often represents a typical tool-and-technology focus, which has not achieved significant results to date. A more relevant question when considering pockets of metadata is whether to include them in the scope of organizational metadata practices. By understanding what it means to include items in the scope of your metadata practices, you can begin to build systems that allow you to practice sophisticated ways to advance their data management and supported business initiatives. After a bit of practice in this manner you can position your organization to better exploit any and all metadata technologies in support of business strategy.
