Everyone in an organization relies on Metadata to do their jobs. Whenever an email is sent, a report is run, inventory
is ordered, compliance procedures are verified, a new IT system is integrated, applications are executed, or essentially any other business function, process, or decision is undertaken, Metadata is facilitating in the background. If that Metadata is corrupt, missing, redundant, or unpredictable then they cannot do their jobs well, they cannot trust the data they are using, and the organization ultimately suffers at all levels. Data Stewards are the people who are use, define, cleanse, archive, analyze, and share the data that is mapped directly to the Metadata of their myriad database and application systems. If your organization does not have Data Stewards (or an inefficient Stewardship Program), you need them.
