Objective

We at MetaData have always believed in the strategic value of data and have totally focused our attention to this unique practice.  Finally, Information Technology has evolved to the front line in most organizations as a key competitive differentiator.  It has become strategic in the sense that it is a necessary component in the execution of any business strategy.  Countless organizations rely on the innovative use of their Decision Support Systems to achieve a temporary and in certain cases a sustainable competitive advantage.

In recent years, with the emergence of enterprise networks and inter-enterprise systems (EDI), a major change has occurred in terms of who uses the data to support their day-to-day business decisions.  Until recently, the focus was on technology specialists and managers who designed, implemented, managed, controlled and usually owned all access to the enterprise data.  Today, business users have moved to the forefront.  They number in millions and are more sophisticated and even more demanding.

To enable these decision-makers, a well-defined Enterprise Information Repository containing the metadata is a Critical Success Factor.  Metadata is the business definition of the organization’s information and its associated rules for processing, thus knowledge.  This new enterprise information solution can finally deliver on the promises of IT where it previously fell short.
