    Hi Steven,
    I fully share the idea that metadata management is crucial and often underestimated or even neglicted in data management programs.
    Data governance, MDM and metadata management are tightly coupled.
    From my previous and humble experiences in the domain, there is a difficulty to federate metadata mgmt solutions. You find metadata in architecture tools, ETL tools, BI tools, databases, enterprise/departmental glossaries, spreadsheets, documents, …
    Tough question: how would you federate all these metadata repositories? What / How to govern in such metadata “jungle”?
