How does metadata improve decision making?

By describing the structure of data so that analysis makes sense.

Metadata describes the structure of data

More than just defining the fields and format of data, metadata gives us the power to describe what, how and why data was collected.

Detailed definitions of structure help to build a better understanding of data by highlighting similarities between data collections. This in turn gives users the power to make valid comparisons between different sources of data.

By identifying trends, patterns and outliers we can interpret this new information to understand the change needed to realise our goals.

How does the Aristotle Metadata Registry improve metadata?

By making it easier for users to create, share and discover metadata, Aristotle-MDR makes reuse a reality.

The Aristotle Metadata Registry is the modern and smarter way for organisations to manage metadata using a blend of tried and tested standards and cutting edge technologies.

Web-based and user-focused, it offers a comprehensive suite of metadata authoring tools to make creating metadata easier and a smart search engine makes discovery intuitive.

Underneath, there is a rich Application Programming Interface so that your developers can dig into this structure to make data more intelligible and easier to understand.
