I am being asked to develop a database dictionary and metadata repository where all the tables and columns of each table will be listed Iincluding all the calculated metrics
This will be a spreadsheet in the beginning and then will be migrated to a wiki.
I am wondering what is the use of all that (when we are so short of resources) in what places this repository can be used
Will it be useful to the reporting team who will develop reports on top of them ? One of the arguments is that it will help alleviate data quality issues and I am wondering how a Metadata repository will alleviate data quality issues
