Oracle Metadata Management harvests and catalogs metadata from virtually any metadata provider, including relational, Hadoop, ETL, BI, data modeling, and many more to allows for interactive searching and browsing of the metadata as well as providing data lineage, impact analysis, semantic definition and semantic usage analysis for any metadata asset. 

Oracle Metadata Management is vital in solving a wide variety of critical business and technical challenges around data governance, transparency, and overall data control.  Would you want to know how those report numbers are calculated, or how any particular change made to any data element affects following tasks and reporting?  Oracle Metadata Management answers these pressing questions for customers in a lightweight browser-based interface.

Oracle Metadata Management includes a number of key updates that revolve around change detection, model comparisons and merge, while continuing to enhance existing harvesting bridges as well as adding new ones.  For those of you already working with Oracle Metadata Management, here is a quick view into some of the new functionality we are excited about:

  • The Business Explorer UI becomes even more beneficial and helpful as it incorporates more functionality (such as Glossary workflow). Business users will be pleased!
  • Custom Attributes are now applicable to all models. This is additional convenient in cataloging everything by crowd sourcing knowledge available in an Enterprise.
  • A first for Oracle Metadata Management are REST APIs. Check out the online demo & screenshot below available with the tool for some insight.

  • More harvesting bridges expanding choice and opportunity within Big Data (refer to the overall new features document linked below, and also in the  certification matrix).
  • Lastly, remote harvesting bridges can now run over the web.  Thinking about transitioning to the Cloud – this is handy!
