Stephen Malajczuk, Katalyst Data Management
Will present a talk entitled
"Metadata Migration To The PPDM Model - A 'Good Practice' General Methodology, Lessons Learnt and Case Study Examples"

Abstract: Metadata is becoming increasingly important for companies seeking to make better and more timely data-driven decisions. As the volumes of data that companies obtain are increasing, there is a greater need to ensure that metadata is in a condition that is easily accessible, portable and accurate. The PPDM Data Model is designed for this purpose, but migrating the metadata from disparate data sources can be fraught with hazards. Based on the collective experience of hundreds of metadata migrations, we share a general “good practice” methodology to help ensure a successful project. We also describe some potential pitfalls to be aware of, and some effective quality control techniques. Some general case study examples are also shown for illustration. Lastly we describe the benefits of utilising the PPDM Data Model, and why a metadata migration is worth the effort in the long run.

Stephen Malajczuk is a first class honours degree qualified geophysicist with a post-graduate certificate in Project Management.  Stephen has 15 years of international experience in the seismic exploration industry. In his time in the industry he has worked as a field geophysicist, a team leader on seismic processing projects, and also managed the day-to-day operations of a small processing centre in Perth. More recently, Stephen has applied his extensive knowledge and experience to the subsurface data management sphere at Katalyst Data Management.
