According to a Gartner report, “Data-related demands are constantly increasing within organizations. These range from demands to more easily and flexibly access data, through increased data governance to the hope of being able to quantify the value of data and to sell data. These various expectations of data in a data landscape — ever more complex and distributed — are shifting the focus of organizations from managing data to managing metadata, with the hope that if data is unmanageable, metadata will be easier to tame.”2

Gartner continued, “These trends, combined with the increased regulatory pressures from the recent go-live of GDPR, create a real market demand for metadata management solutions that will last throughout the next three to five years. While the market opportunity can appear to be extremely large — after all, metadata is everywhere — the success of metadata management as a distinct discipline delivering value to the organizations is not yet a done deal.”2
