Oracle today announced the general availability of Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management (OEMM), Oracle's comprehensive Metadata Management technology for Data Governance. With this release Oracle stresses the importance that it lays on it's product strategy that not just offers best in class Data Integration solutions like Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), Oracle GoldenGate (OGG) and Oracle Enterprise Data Quality (OEDQ), but also on technology that ties together business initiatives like governance.
Data Governance Considerations
Organizations have been struggling to impose credible governance onto their data for long with ad-hoc processes and technologies that are unwieldy and unscalable. There were a number of reasons why this was the case.
Complete Stewardship - Data Transparency from Source to Report
The biggest advantages of having an airtight Data Governance program is to reduce data risk, increase security and to manage your organization's Data Life-cycle. Any governance tool should be able to surface lineage, impact analysis and data flow not just within a Business Analytics, or within a Data Ware house but across all these systems, no matter what technology one is using. This increased transparency assesses accurately risks and impacts during changes to data.

Big Data Governance
OEMM along with Oracle Data Integrator provides a powerful combination to govern Big Data standards including HBase, SQOOP and JSON. With ODI providing complete support to these data standards for Data loading and transformation, OEMM harvests the ODI metadata to stitch together a complete data map that even traverses through any Big Data Reservoir that organizations have in place.
Oracle and 3rd Party Metadata
OEMM is truly heterogeneous. It is designed to pull in and manage metadata from Oracle and 3rd party Data Bases, Data Warehouses, ETL, Business Intelligence, and other Reporting Tools.
