Knowledge: The Essence of Meta Data - Metacide: The Killing of a Meta Data Project
DMReview.com welcomes Todd Stephens as an online columnist. His column, "Knowledge: The Essence of Meta Data" will appear the third week of each month. Look for his insightful comments into the many aspects of meta data, from data architecture and knowledge management to promoting support for meta data concepts and project management to upper level decision- makers.
What an honor to be invited to provide a monthly view of meta data for DMReview.com. Each month, I will bring an observation, experience or best practice from the world of meta data to this column. I hope you will find this information useful or at the very least thought provoking. Some months I may discuss the outer realms of meta data such as data architecture, knowledge management or information architecture. I think you will agree, many of these areas are converging and each provides insight on how meta data can create value for your organization. Click here to read the full article.
