Organizations looking to better locate, understand, manage and gain value from their data have a new industry standard to leverage. ODPi, a nonprofit Linux Foundation organization focused upon accelerating the open ecosystem of big data solutions, recently announced ODPi Egeria, a new project that supports the free flow of metadata between different technologies and vendor offerings.
