Data models that are grounded in meaningful business context can ensure ease of database development and data sharing. The capability for integration of data models and their related metadata should support the development of databases and data stores in a number of paradigms, including relational and document oriented. Data so governed becomes sharable and manageable across systems with much less effort than manual ETL rule coding requires.IDCSpotlight Feature NewTitle

Managing databases at the model level becomes even more important when one considers the much greater degree to which internally managed data in both relational and non-relational (NoSQL) sources will be integrated with data from other sources. To address these needs, organizations must standardize on a system for developing, managing, and sharing data models. The benefits that accrue from this capability include more consistent and reliable data management with increased data quality across the enterprise.
