The foundation for a dynamic environment is organizing and managing the data about your data

Meta-data management is defined as the process, governance and implementation framework for managing a model or structure to hold data describing other data. This “other data” is often referred to as content data, while the data to describe it is known as meta-data. Classic examples of meta-data management include indexes, catalogs and dictionaries. Applying the principles of meta-data management to application development can result in an extremely powerful, dynamic and robust environment.

Problem Statement
For years, traditional data warehouses and their associated applications have been strictly defined and narrowly implemented. Data structures are designed to hold specific content, and jobs and reports are built to a predetermined set of requirements. The problem with this model is that businesses change over time, and thus their data applications must change with them. These changes often result in significant re-engineering efforts and/or a major upheaval of existing functionality. What if these time-consuming and expensive efforts could be avoided? The incorporation of meta-data management into existing data platforms can provide the flexibility and scalability needed to avoid repetitive development efforts due to dynamically changing requirements.

In larger diversified institutions, the problem is further compounded as a result of data being managed in silos. These businesses can suffer from inconsistent rules, analytics and ultimately truths about their financials, objectives and strategic direction.

How Exusia Can Help
Exusia consultants possess an in-depth understanding of the principles of meta-data management and how they can be applied to our clients’ information processes and systems. By storing an object’s meta-data as content instead of structure, end-users and analysts can be empowered to modify formats, rules and business logic on-the-fly without ever requiring changes to the underlying code-base. Advantages that Exusia’s meta-data management capabilities provide include:

  • Robust Data Source Consumption: Read and store inputs from multiple data sources, regardless of differences in structure or file format
  • Dynamic Code Generation: Change underlying business logic and processing rules through easy-to-use front-end capabilities
  • Custom Reporting: Produce custom outputs with the ability to configure user-defined record formats and filtering logic
