For publishers who undertake initiatives to upgrade or update content workflow and knowledge management, missing or incomplete metadata is the great gremlin. Yet a key to success can be defining Minimal Viable Metadata (MVM) – the set of bare minimum information necessary to describe each element of content. The MVM itself will reflect a mix of internal and external factors, from IT systems to compliance requirements. With an MVM in place, publishers can accelerate production timelines; reduce and eliminate bottlenecks; and find new ways to drive revenue. Learn how to establish an MVM model quickly and sufficiently for the business challenge at hand, while not allowing the perfect to be the enemy of the good.
