Dawn Michels: Metadata Updates - What if We Got It Wrong?
Metadata is usually gathered during the development of a new database, or sometimes as an update during a change. But what happens if the business changes their mind, or realizes that what they understand about their data changes over time? A recent software upgrade provided us with a way to allow users to see their data models as well as the metadata. The effect of this was that now that they could view the models and see the metadata – they had a chance to review and challenge some of the metadata. We needed to come up with a process and method to hear their corrections, incorporate it into the model and finally – implement it physically in the data structures. Some of the challenges encountered were developing a formal process for intake, understand the ramifications of the change, and physically implementing the new metadata.
Susan Von Fruke: Applying Library and Information Science Disciplines to DMBOK Knowledge Areas
Library and Information Science (LIS) has been practiced for centuries, and has aided in organization and classification of information, traditionally in physical form. LIS is alive and well today, and has evolved to manage digital information as well. When compared, the goals of LIS and data management are strikingly similar!
