Business Objects Announces Availability of BusinessObjects Metadata Management XI 3.0

Originally published September 10, 2008

Business Objects, an SAP company, recently announced the availability of BusinessObjects Metadata Management XI 3.0, software that enables organizations to support data governance by providing a central view of metadata assets and their relationships. By bringing all metadata from disparate tools and sources into one unified repository, customers gain the transparency necessary to successfully govern their enterprise data. Metadata Management XI 3.0 includes the industry’s first metapedia – an encyclopedia that translates metadata into business definitions, allowing for easier navigation and data discovery by business users.

Metadata provides information about data from across the enterprise, enabling IT professionals to better understand the business content, origin and context of any corporate, operational or technical data. Providing customers with improved capabilities to understand and manage metadata is a necessary first step for any successful data–driven initiative including business intelligence (BI), data migration or data quality. Only with this insight into metadata can companies successfully implement a data governance strategy, which will help ensure compliance by delivering trusted, well–understood information to business users. With Metadata Management XI 3.0, customers can now bring metadata together in one place regardless of whether it comes from Business Objects products or other vendors’ BI, data integration or data modeling tools.

“The new metapedia functionality in the latest version of Metadata Management will support our data governance programs because we will be able to name a term and enter a detailed description with synonyms against it,” said William Robinette, Manager, Business Intelligence Systems, Advance Auto Parts.
