Metadata and Semantics

Hey, I know the last entry was full of excitement; but it proved to be short lived.

Even though I have a license for the Ab Initio GDE, I haven't had a chance to use it. Nor has the promised availability of installing Metadata Manager for Informatica 8.

Informatica has been giving us problems again. The new version, even though its been out for a while, has some problems; mostly with the transition from older versions to new. But that has precluded me from installing Metadata Manager yet.

In the meantime, I was able to attend the 3rd Annual Semantics Conference in San Jose last week. It was really helpful. I learned that Ontology and Semantics is useful to me as the next level of abstraction above Metadata Modeling; so I will be able to use it to find the common points between Ab Initio's EME and Informatica's MM and my own metadata model. More will be coming soon on the details of the conference. In the meantime, here is a link.
