metadata catalog at schema, table, column level
we need to capture "business metadata" at the column level
* Internal product family
The attributes (Description, Internal product family, etc.) should be programmable, i.e. we these should be fields that can be defined by the end user.
This is particularly important for AT&T having > 90M columns of data across the company, and we would like to document the data in place, vs. via spreadsheets afterwards.
The only way to do this today is to self define a schema to capture column attributes in the "comments field" , which is clumsy and not directly queryable.
