Businesses want insights and insights require data.
Typically, IT Organizations with a technology focus setup Big Data infrastructure with in-house expertise and bring in data manually through native tools.
When the business is ready to look into the data, it does not know where to look. Why? Because there is little or no metadata management planned. And, the business needs reassurances and answers to their questions:
- Is the data trustworthy?
- Were data quality rules implemented and enforced?
- How can they access the data?
- Were all the possible data access patterns during the design?
