[NIST chaired and continues to participate in the IEEE Big Data Governance and Metadata Management (BDGMM) Activities]
Governance and metadata management poses unique challenges with regard to the Big Data paradigm shift. The governance lifecycle needs to be sustainable from creation, maintenance, depreciation, archiving, and deletion due to volume, velocity, and variety of big data changes and can be accumulated whether the data is at rest, in motion, or in transactions. Furthermore, metadata management must also consider the issues of security and privacy at the individual, organizational, and national levels.
The goal of BDGMM is to enable data integration/mashup among heterogeneous datasets from diversified domain repositories and make data discoverable, accessible, and usable through a machine readable and actionable standard data infrastructure.
