During a recent DATAVERSITY® interview, CEO and co-founder of Octopai Amnon Drori discussed that while Metadata Management clearly is a central piece of the Data Management landscape, many organizations are not leveraging it correctly.
“Unfortunately, in a typical environment, you can see multiple systems of different vendors that are participating in the data movement process. And moreover, they are digging to each and every one of them separately to understand the relationship between all those systems. It is mostly being done manually.” He remarked how all that digging costs organizations incalculable losses in productivity and money, while so many of the tasks could ultimately be completed with automation. Being forced to manually trace the data history every time specific metadata is needed was extremely time consuming, frustrating, and inaccurate said Drori.
