This course enables students to acquire the skills necessary to use the Information Governance Catalog to analyze metadata stored within the Information Server Repository. The emphasis is on how metadata gets captured within the repository and how to explore and analyze the metadata it contains.
Please refer to coure overview
This is a basic course for those who will be using IGC to explore and analyze metadata stored within the Information Server Repository.
Those taking this course should have basic knowledge of the Windows operating system. Familiarity with Information Server products is desirable but not required.
