Welcome to the second in our mini-series ‘Who cares?’, where we are exploring the key stakeholders and business functions who should be putting data lineage at the forefront of their strategy.
Businesses are flushed with the understanding that data is the new gold and are frantically scurrying to be first to strike it rich. Yet how do they do this?
What is Metadata?
Put simply, it’s data about data. The who, what, when, where and how that outlines the properties and tags to categorise the information on a piece of data, defining its purpose.
Take, for example, a digital image. The file may tell you the size of the image, the date & time it was taken, what type of camera was used, and where the photo was taken. This is metadata, it gives you more insight into the data asset.
The importance of keeping an organisation’s systems running 24x7 cannot be underestimated, just ask any current TSB customer their thoughts on the matter and I’m sure you will get a emphatic response. In this digital age customers now demand an uninterrupted service. Therefore, regardless of whether your organisation is fully automated and practices DevOps or you have a Production Support team who are tasked with resolving issues that arise in its workflow, automation tools are highly critical.
