A universal approach to metadata management
In the digital economy, data has become an invaluable asset for businesses. Managing complex data requires a solid grasp of its significance and meaning.
Our range of metadata management solutions have been developed to help your business take advantage of this crucial asset.
What is metadata?
Metadata is essentially ‘data about data’. The simplest of metadata might detail the physical size, author and creation date of a file, but in the digital marketplace it goes much deeper than that.
Data is connected to other data in ways that will either baffle or inform, which is why we’ve developed a set of tools to help you understand those relationships.
If dataset A changes, what impact does that have on dataset? What is the significance of every element of your database? Without WireFilter’s expertise, you can’t answer these questions and you’ll simply get lost in a mountain of indecipherable information.
Metadata database management
Metadata is essential to interpreting the contents of a database.
Our universal approach to metadata management aggregates and links the metadata from a wide range of data sources within your business.
Metadata is at its most useful when the company that owns it can share, standardise and exploit the hidden value contained within. Your organisation’s information assets contain key insight into the health of the business, its touchpoints with customers and the inherent risks it faces.
With our metadata management solutions, your database will gain new meaning, and its significance on your business’s performance and future will be laid bare.
A better understanding of your market and industry
Metadata is crucial in a world of Big Data. It’s capable of giving your business a competitive advantage by enabling teams to extract exacting information far more quickly.
For instance, if certain customer data is required to inform the next twelve months’ marketing strategy, metadata will hold the key and detailed map for the data you need to plan, target and execute.
By fully utilising the colossal amounts of data your business likely stores, you’ll gain a far better understanding of the market, the industry within which you operate and can use that knowledge to raise your game.
Data is powerful – it enables you to provide much higher levels of service and expertise based on fact, rather than hunches and historic insight.
Super-fast access to critical insight
Metadata enables every department within your business to access critical information fast, but it needs to be accessible and use friendly.
