Managing Enterprise data

You are working for a large national supermarket chain, MacLeod’s Market, with nearly 200 stores countrywide and a history stretching back decades. MacLeod’s has multiple global supplier relationships. The chain offers a customer loyalty club and the ability to create shopping lists accessible through both a Web site and a mobile app. A recent market research study indicated customers would like to have online ordering and home delivery and more sustainable products.

3.Last, at what point would you incorporate meta data design? Why? What collaboration among the data modeling, source data, and meta data repository groups does the application prototyping group need to have?
