In any enterprise, one of the major problems faced by the data management team is lack of the metadata information for all tables developed. Even if the data management team wants to publish the definitions of tables and attributes, the lack of metadata definitions limits them to publish only the structure of table. It's a serious constraint when it comes to reusability as the team who wants to use these tables will not be able to know purpose of the tables. Even during the acquisition and mergers of organizations, some of the vital information used by the team is to look for the tables and attribute's metadata information which will help them to compare.
