Metadata programs are implemented to help an organization to manage and leverage its data as a valued strategic asset, reduce information technology costs and improve the management and the value organizations gain from their data and information systems. Metadata programs focus on formalizing accountability for metadata, improving business and technical understanding of data resources, and improving business and technical productivity while improving data quality, managing data redundancy and reducing data duplication. An effective Metadata program clearly lays out an understanding of the data supporting the organizational efforts and rapidly improves the value organizations gain from package implementations, data warehousing and business intelligence efforts, application integration efforts, ERP, CRM, content and knowledge management, and EAI efforts.
Knowledge of issues that can be addressed through Metadata is a plus but there are no prerequisites.
