What’s Your Approach for Capturing Metadata?
At First San Francisco Partners, we enjoy helping organizations get the most from their enterprise data catalogs and metadata management tools.
We often engage with clients before they purchase a tool to help set the overall vision and strategy for enterprise data governance and metadata management — and sometimes continue on to support clients in the selection process and tool implementation.
Other times, we're brought in to develop a plan and restart a company’s stalled data catalog implementation.
Investing in data management technology is a significant step and one where an organization can recoup the cost of the technology and resourcing. But to do so, there must be a focused effort to ensure the right people and processes are in place to capture and maintain metadata.
In Just Because You Can Capture Metadata Doesn’t Mean You Should, FSFP’s Catherine Ruef explains why metadata management tools need to be actively managed and how having the right people and processes in place helps ensure quality metadata is captured.
Where is your organization in its data catalog journey? Have you found the key to adoption and expansion in your metadata management investment? Or are you struggling to make a case for investing in metadata? I'd love to know.
