What is the Metadata Professional Organization?

The Metadata Professional Organization (MPO) is a non-profit international association comprised of business and IT professionals in all areas of metadata practice, including administrators, developers, architects and managers. This meeting will also show the MPO links to other Social networks.

The MPO will be presenting some of the results from our 2011 Metadata Tools Survey. Some of the topics covered will be The Metadata tools used and in which Industries use these tools and how many Tools are used per company. At the end of the session, a Round table discussion will be held in order to answer any questions that you may have, as well as a discussion on bad metadata practices.
