Meta data are data sets that can be defined and then applied to documents, people or other data elements in the intranet.
For example if a document type is 'Contracts' then any document that is specified as a 'contract' might have metadata automatically associated with it that specifies the amount, the supplier name and the end date of the contract. However 'marketing' documents might use metadata to specify the relevant products described.
Claromentis provides a meta data administrator panel that allows sets of metadata to be defined, and allocated to the appropriate objects in Claromentis. This ensures that as the business requirements change over time the metadata sets will always be appropriate.
