Why a Metadata Repository Will Improve Search and Information Transparency

Intelligent search can be achieved when an organization recognizes the value of a metadata repository or enterprise metadata environment. A stumbling block within information governance is, and always has been, the lack of metadata and subjective metadata, along with the issue of the business user as the primary author of metadata.…

Just for the Heck of It – Let’s Clean Up Our Content

Do you ever perform preprocessing of data that is to be migrated? Not just your structured data, but all your unstructured and semi-structured data. Some of you will answer that you do, usually preprocessing a small subset of unstructured data, and if it looks OK, well there you go, it’s ready to move.…

Only 918 reported data breaches led to a whopping 1.9 billion records being exposed, as of September 2017. I would expect the number to rise, although not dramatically, I hope. Compared with the last six months of 2016, the number of lost, stolen, or compromised records increased by 164 percent.…

It’s All About Tagging – Or Is It?

One of my favorite subjects – metadata tagging. For years, metadata would make business professionals stare glassily into space when explained to them. No more, I hope.
