On Oct 16 Gartner published a new “Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions“. Metadata management is an aspect of an organization’s management of its data and information assets. The term “metadata” describes the various facets of an information asset that can improve its usability throughout its life cycle. While it does not directly mention Decision Management and its vendors, it includes:
- Business glossary — A repository used to communicate and govern an enterprise’s business terms, along with the associated definitions and the relationships between those terms
- Rules management — Automates the enforcement of business rules that are tied to data elements and associated metadata. This capability supports dedicated interfaces for the creation of, and the order of execution and links with, information stewardship for effective governance.
