Managing Metadata, Master Data, and Master Metadata

Metadata management and Master Data Management (MDM) are parts of an overall enterprise information management (EIM) strategy that IRI software supports in comprehensive and unique ways.  Workflow analysis and job modification in the IRI Voracity platform supports the stewardship and persistence of metadata and master data, along with other data governance objectives.  Review the tabs in this section to learn how to handle, and benefit from:

Concept

Definition

Metadata

the descriptions and history of transaction (fact) and dimension tables, flat and index files, web logs, and other sources of data in (or distilled into) sequential structures

Metadata Management

the processes, techniques, and governance policies surrounding the development, storage, re-use, modification, sharing, analysis, and persistence of metadata

Master Data

mission-critical 'golden sources of truth' or reference data. These values -- such as customer details or product names -- should be cleaned, unified, and secured for multiple groups to use safely in the context of MDM

Master Metadata

the metadata defining the master data

Master Data Management (MDM)

the processes, techniques, and governance policies surrounding the identification, acquisition, integration (including cleansing and transformation), persistence, distribution and maintenance of master data
