Enterprise metadata management is the cornerstone for all data capabilities, such as data catalog, lineage, governance, stewardship, preparation, and provisioning, which organizations require. Enterprise metadata management is the process of managing structured and unstructured metadata, which gives additional information and context to other information and data assets of an organization. However, for the organization to truly use its metadata as an asset that enables users to find, understand, and trust their data, there must be an integrated view of this information. This integrated metadata system becomes the system of record for enterprise data. Therefore, metadata management tools empower enterprises to gain deep insights into operations, customer behaviors, and marketing campaign effectiveness.
