Metadata Management

Metadata management involves managing data about other data, whereby this "other data" is generally referred to as content data. Metadata management can be defined as the end-to-end process and governance framework for creating, controlling, enhancing, attributing, defining and managing a metadata schema, model or other structured aggregation system, either independently or within a repository and the associated supporting processes (often to enable the management of content). If one is in the process of making a knowledge management solution, creating a metadata schema and developing a system in which metadata is managed are very important. In such a project, a dedicated metadata manager may be appointed in order to maintain adherence to metadata and information management standards. (Source:
