"Recently there has been a lot of buzz in the data community on the topic of metadata management. It’s often discussed in the context of data discovery, data provenance, data governance, and data privacy. Even Gartner and Forrester have created the new Active Metadata Management and Enterprise Data Fabric categories to highlight the development in this area.
