3.1 Metadata Classification
The only metadata classification we have needed in-house so far is the distinction between conceptual and contextual metadata. This probably reflects the fact that we are only just beginning to try to integrate the metadata in the production lifecycle.
3.2 Metadata used/created at each phase
Here we list the metadata systems per GSBPM phase rather than the metadata. Please see section 4 for the contents of our metadata systems.
Specify needs - Vardok, Stabas and Adminstrative system for products, projects and processes
Design - Stabas
Build - None
Collect - Datadok and Metadb
Process - Datadok and Metadb
Analyse - Vardok, Stabas and About the statistics
Disseminate - Metadata portal, About the statistics, About the data collection, StatBank. Service library for metadata systems (Stabas, Vardok, Datadok, Metadb).
3.3 Metadata relevant to other business processes
Our current Adminstrative system for products, projects and processes is linked to management and budgeting.
