Metadata Registry (MDR)
The need to centralize and standardize metadata continues to be a driving force across organizations, particularly pharmaceutical companies and government agencies. Companies understand that inconsistent terminology and definitions undermine the practical use of metadata.
For pharmaceutical companies, the ability to leverage information across clinical trials reduces money and time spent on clinical trials, resulting in bringing new products to market faster.
Software AG offers an MDR to ensure that common terms and definitions are used across clinical trials. webMethods OneData MDR is a central source for standard definitions, meanings, constructs and domains—all metadata—involving all R&D phases of a pharmaceutical organization. It’s the first packaged (COTS) software that provides a ready-to-use enterprise metadata registry based on the ISO/IEC 11179 standard, used extensively by large organizations in life sciences.
For government agencies, public access to consumer information, such as environmental data, research grants or airport safety information, requires that data be found and understood. By centrally locating data dictionaries and lists of values in OneData MDR, automated tools and services (e.g., search engines) can enable users to find information across disciplines and agencies. Once found, the meaning of the data can then be displayed, providing valuable information to the citizens.
