Many of us know that great metadata management can dramatically lower the cost of application development. However, with all the growth of NoSQL, what is the best database architecture to store metadata? We look at six database architectures (Relational, Analytical, Key-Value, Column-Family, Graph and Document) and discuss the pros and cons of each system for storing agile metadata. We then take a deep-dive into the exotic world of graph and document stores to show how organizations can integrate metadata for both structured and un-structured data in a single metadata registry. We will also cover topics such as the role of business rules, business glossaries, controlled vocabularies, taxonomies, ontologies, concept registries, SKOS and ISO/IEC 11179 metadata registry standards in modern metadata management systems.
