Level:  Intermediate

Although metadata management is one of the core components of the Enterprise Data Management discipline, many organizations have difficulty justifying an Enterprise Metadata Management program. In many instances, metadata is viewed narrowly as a technical issue.

This presentation will center around leveraging metadata best practices in a practical manner to solve business critical problems - specifically, the following topics will be discussed:

  • Common business vocabulary across the enterprise and the governance process around it
  • Impact analysis – data traceability through the layers of architecture
  • Root cause analysis – data lineage from the point of entry through the point of consumption by systems and reports
  • Leveraging operational metadata for real-time and near real-time straight-through (lights-out) processing

Samra Sulaiman currently leads the Enterprise Metadata Management program at Fannie Mae. Her background includes extensive experience with data management, systems integration, enterprise architecture, regulatory compliance, and operations. Samra is actively engaged in several global data management industry forums.
