Ab Initio

Ab Initio focusses on operational metadata. Operational metadata is actionable by business and IT management. It is about the systems that process data, the applications in those systems, and the rules in those applications. It is about the datasets throughout the enterprise, what is in them, how they got there, and who uses them. It is about the quality of the data, and how that quality has changed over time. It is about all the many things in all the IT systems.

Ab Initio also ties this operational metadata together with business metadata – business definitions, created by business people, of the various pieces of information throughout the enterprise. The result is a true enterprise metadata management system – the Ab Initio® Enterprise Meta>Environment®, or EME®.
