Too many pretty pictures of Enterprise Architecture (EA) diagrams have been designed from the top down perspective which unfortunately do not reflect the actual IT infrastructure. Similarly, too many Business Glossaries (BG) have been left empty or disconnected from the existing Data Modeling initiatives, and the rest of the Enterprise Architecture. Finally, too many Data Governance (DG) initiatives have been pushed by idealistic IT managers (and the vendors themselves) as brand new initiative and technology, rather that integrated with data standardization, Master Data Management (MDM), and of course Metadata Management (MM). The big picture must support both business users in their daily activities within the business applications or Business intelligences reports, and the IT engineers for the life cycle change management within their Data Modeling, Data Integration (DI/ETL), and Business Intelligence (BI) design and development tools.

Christian has 20 years of experience entirely devoted to metadata repository technologies. He has been involved with virtually all metadata standards, more recently with the OMG CWM. He has also published numerous papers, and is a regular speaker at DAMA and metadata related conferences. He is the founder and CEO of Meta Integration in Silicon Valley (California) that he created in 1997.

John Friedrich has been working in the Information Systems arena for over 20 years. Much of his work has been on the cutting edge of modern software development, metadata management, enterprise architecture development, and data and process standardization. He has numerous successful implementations at Fortune 500 and large Government organizations. John has presented these concepts at several DAMA and meta-data conferences.
