Meta Data Coalition
The Meta Data Coalition (MDC) is an independent organization of vendors and users who volunteer time and resources to pursue agreed-upon goals related to the standardization of enterprise meta data for the mutual benefit of all interested parties.
The MDC drives the definition, implementation, and evolution of the Open Information Model (OIM) and its support mechanisms. Proposals for new OIM models and extensions are made available to members for in-depth review. From this process, agreed-upon models are formally adopted into the OIM specification and published through the MDC Web site.
The MDC maintains a Web site to disseminate information and an e-mail address to allow members and potential members to communicate electronically. For more information about the MDC, see the MDC Web site at http://www.mdcinfo.com.
