IEEE 2957 Big Data Governance and Metadata Management Working Group (BDGMM WG)

Title: Standard for a Reference Architecture for Big Data Governance and Metadata Management

Reference: IEEE Big Data Governance and Metadata Management Standards Roadmap White Paper


This standard defines a big data governance and metadata management framework to enable scalability, findability, accessibility, interoperability and reusability of datasets among corporate heterogenous and cross-domain repositories. The standard focuses on achieving data interoperability by utilizing persistent identifiers (PIDs) to enable:

  • A standard metadata registry for data discovery using machine-readable formats,
  • A standard data type registry for data consumption using machine-actionable structures, and
  • Standard end-point services to convert data values between different types.
