Data Governance is a Key Driver for Metadata Usage
11
A Key Use Case for Metadata Management
In a recent DATAVERSITY survey, over
60% of respondents stated that:
Data Governance is a key driver for their
use of Metadata.
Global Data Strategy, Ltd. 2017
Business vs. Technical Metadata
• The following are examples of types of business & technical metadata.
12
Business Metadata Technical Metadata
• Definitions & Glossary
• Data Steward
• Organization
• Privacy Level
• Security Level
• Acronyms & Abbreviations
• Business Rules
• Etc.
• Column structure of a database table
• Data Type & Length (e.g. VARCHAR(20))
• Domains
• Standard abbreviations (e.g. CUSTOMER ->
CUST)
• Nullability
• Keys (primary, foreign, alternate, etc.)
• Validation Rules
• Data Movement Rules
• Permissions
• Etc.

What is a Data Model?
14
Translates Regulations, Policies & Procedures… …to the Technical Data Systems & Structures that Support Them
Regulation -
e.g. GDPR
Policy
“All Personally Identifiable
Information (PII) must be
anonymized for the purpose
of information sharing
between departments. “
Which data fields constitute PII
in our databases?
Global Data Strategy, Ltd. 2017
Technical & Business Metadata
• Technical Metadata describes the structure, format, and rules for storing data
• Business Metadata describes the business definitions, rules, and context for data.
• Data represents actual instances (e.g. John Smith)
15
CREATE TABLE EMPLOYEE (
employee_id INTEGER NOT NULL,
department_id INTEGER NOT NULL,
employee_fname VARCHAR(50) NULL,
employee_lname VARCHAR(50) NULL,
employee_ssn CHAR(9) NULL);
CREATE TABLE CUSTOMER (
customer_id INTEGER NOT NULL,
customer_name VARCHAR(50) NULL,
customer_address VARCHAR(150) NULL,
customer_city VARCHAR(50) NULL,
customer_state CHAR(2) NULL,
customer_zip CHAR(9) NULL);

Building a Holistic View

Integrating Application data from ERP and CRM systems
• Integrating the data from ERP and CRM systems provides a more complete view of critical data
such as Customer data.
• Metadata creates the linkages between these systems for integration & reporting

Creating a Technical Data Inventory
• Data models & the associated metadata can create a real-world inventory of the data storage
associated with key business data domains within the control of a data governance program.

• Some systems, such as ERP and CRM
applications can be a particular challenge to
extract technical & business definitions.
• Due to their complex & proprietary
architectures, they can be very “black box”.
Global Data Strategy, Ltd. 2017
ERP/CRM and Packaged Application Metadata
• Packaged applications such as CRM and ERP systems (e.g. Salesforce, Oracle PeopleSoft, etc.) hold critical information about
Customers, Employees, Sales, and more.
• But extracting information from these systems can be complex
• Thousands of disparate tables
• Relationships not clearly defined
• Technical names don’t reflect business definitions or values
• No business definitions
• It is therefore difficult to integrate this critical information with other key systems such as a Data Warehouse, Reporting Data
Mart, and/or MDM hub.
18
Technical Metadata Business Metadata
Global Data Strategy, Ltd. 2017
Align Data Elements with Business Drivers
• With thousands of tables in a typical packaged application, it is important to be able to categorize them
by business area and function.

Global Data Strategy, Ltd. 2017
Focus on the Business Meaning of Data
• Translating often cryptic table structures into meaningful business terminology is critical to understand
and integrate application data sources into a larger data governance initiative.
20
Technical Structures Business Meaning
Global Data Strategy, Ltd. 2017
Data Lineage – Providing an Audit Trail for Critical Data
• Metadata helps create a data lineage from critical reports to the source systems that created them.
• The typical enterprise technical infrastructure can be complex
• ERP and CRM systems are a key part of the infrastructure
• Understanding the data flow and data lineage between these systems is critical for audit trail and
business context.

Technical Metadata Makes Data Governance Actionable
• Metadata & Data models can help take the business rules & definitions defined in policies and
make them actionable in physical systems, maintaining a lineage & audit trail.
