The enterprise modeling method in chapter 4 provides enterprise metadata for information integration; thus an enterprise information manager (EIM) turning these metadata into action is readily in line to be developed. The metadatabase model develops such an EM. In particular, it provides an organic architecture using ubiquitous enterprise metadata to facilitate dynamic alignment, as discussed in chapter 1. The details of the model are provided in the ensuing chapters while a technical overview is presented below.
