The Changing Role of Metadata & Modeling
The role of metadata and modeling in DW/BI initiatives is evolving. As DW/BI projects mature, leading architects are evolving their data modeling techniques to better develop and maintain these strategic assets. While most organizations rely on data modeling for planning and designing a data warehouse, there is much more to it than capturing data definitions and physical data models for DDL generation. Metadata related to stewardship/accountability, ETL logistics, privacy and information security, source/target mappings system of record, all need to find its way into data models. More importantly, it needs to be instantly communicated and accessible to the appropriate audiences to keep both IT and business stakeholders on the same page. Learn how to leverage the changing role of metadata and modeling with ER/Studio to accelerate DW/BI initiatives.
