Check out these 5 errors that industry experts say you should factor in when strategizing and following through on enterprise data integration
Misidentifying Metadata Definitions
Metadata may not be the most sexy aspect of information systems or business problem solving, but it is crucial, according to data quality expert and author Peter R. Benson in a discussion with OCDQ blog writer and industry consultant Jim Harris. Finding ways to link terminology through concept identifiers retains communication and but avoids ambiguous tags that can get lost in an integration.

So, metadata is really important, Benson says.
