By managing the enterprise Information-Assets, IBM Metadata Workbench:

  • Increases the understanding and trust in the information by allowing end-to-end visual lineage of the information flow including where the information came from and how it was derived.
  • Provides better business understanding of the information as it adds business context and meaning for IT assets.
  • Enables easy 'Search & Find' capabilities on information assets, as it classifies all assets in a single repository, and offers advanced reporting services on its classified items.
  • Provides better Data Governance by enabling risk analysis on the data and dependency management.
  • Increases business and IT collaboration and communications, by sharing a single metadata repository among business and technical users.
