This page contains material for my presentation at the
DAMA Minnesota meeting, on October 20th, 2010.
Title:NO-SQL Metadata Management
Description:Metadata, or data that describes data, is fundamentally different than data itself.
The management of metadata is becoming a strategic area for many organizations and the topic of data
governance is also becoming central to the data strategies for many organizations.
This presentation will look at how the requirements of enterprise metadata
management dictate that new schema-free web application architectures be
better suited to the task of metadata management.
These new “zero translation” architectures combine some of the best aspects of document
management systems and traditional tabular data management but without the complexity
of traditional multi-tier architectures.
We will give examples of how these new XML-centric architectures are being used to solve
metadata management challenges and how they empower non-programmers to build and maintain metadata registries.
