Metadata Management Software

Metadata Management Software Overview

What is Metadata Management Software?

Metadata management software provides context and information for data assets stored across the enterprise. An effective metadata strategy should make data easily searchable and locatable, supporting both governance and analytics. Metadata management tools include data catalogs, or assemblages of data organized into datasets (e.g. searchable tables or other arrangements, facilitating exploration). Various kinds of metadata include titles, tags, date of creation (or last change), and source information (i.e. the application or data source from which a particular piece of data was derived). Metadata management software helps ensure that data is described consistently across departments or business units, providing a common language and taxonomy for enterprise data.
