What is metadata? Metadata is defined as "a set of data that describes and gives information about other data". 

There are two types of metadata:

1. Business metadata.
2. Technical metadata.

Business metadata is the process of mapping information, business definitions and information rules. Technical metadata represents the technical aspect of all data including data types, field lengths, content profiling, lineage, and a lot more.

People are frustrated with the amount of content available. All you have to do is find the documents you need without difficulty or complexity.

Even the metadata alone can be very helpful. Metadata can also​ refer to records without actual data.
