The Case for Open Metadata

Chessell, Mandy

An open source project called Apache Atlas was approved as an incubator project on 5th May 2015. This project aims to provide an open metadata repository and information governance frameworks. The appearance of metadata management in open source offers an exciting opportunity to rethink the way we manage data in data science projects to create trust to both share and consume data. This paper describes the role of Apache Atlas in changing the availability and quality of metadata, which will in turn improve both the agility of the data scientist and the transparency of the results they produce.
