Metadata Technology North America

Extensive efforts are being undertaken by data management agencies and users to leverage metadata standards to provide better access to statistical data and knowledge. This however requires combining domain expertise, infrastructures, tools, and technologies, an endeavor that can be challenging even for larger organizations. Metadata Technology North America and Integrated Data Management Services are at the forefront of such efforts. As such, we recognize the need for providing free or low-costs access to shared infrastructure and tools for fostering metadata-driven data management and sharing. OpenMetadata is our attempt at achieving such objective.The web based portal, to be unveiled at IASSIST 2012, aims to provide agencies and users with an online space for sharing metadata and gaining access to useful tools/utilities around the DDI, SDMX and related standards. Furthermore, it will provide detailed provenance information, directing users to sources of data to apply for access and/or leverage other services. The presentation will provide an overview of the initial set of tools and services available through the portal, including OpenDDI, and outline our long term vision.
