Looking at these two replies, the first thought that comes to mind is 'capacity for growth'. Large enterprises often have an application comparable to what Arthur described. There is often an organization tasked with change control that tracks assets such as servers, IP addresses, printers, desktop and server software configurations and so on. Arthur mentions the Security Classification Dictionary tracks datasets. That could be minimalist information, such as elements or attributes that are simple identifiers. Or it could be more complex if the application tracks metadata for the datasets. To respond to compliance and regulatory issues, some organizations are building entire new applications that track changes to their organization's data and metadata. To ensure compliance with a variety of regs, one organization created a new database application for tracking the changes to several thousand databases spread throughout the organization.
