Metadata management is the structured provision and maintenance of metadata. The goal of good metadata management is to increase data quality and speed up the provision and retrieval of suitable data records. Well-maintained metadata and clean metadata management are the basis for the meaningful use of data catalogs.
Metadata describe a company's own datasets, make them findable, and provide necessary context for interpretation. In addition, they establish a link between the logical and technical data model and enable the definition of dependencies (lineage).
In the Contiamo data catalog you can create all relevant metadata accessible in one central location, such as
A data catalog as a platform for metadata management allows end-to-end representation of the data cycle from data creation, changes, descriptions to the use of the data in a structured form in a central location.
Automated extraction of metadata enriches linked data sources with associated metadata and context. The integration of external data sources such as Excel and XML files is also supported. Metadata management is thus always traceable and clean.
Present all your data assets, user roles, processes and data assets intuitively, in a clear form and integrate your ETL and BI tools directly into Contiamo via APIs.
Without clean metadatabases, unclear data streams lead to poor data quality, unknown data origins, and high process risk. This is where Contiamo's AI-powered data profiler comes in, providing direct insight into the quality and consistency of a data set.
