This appendix lists information that can be included in a data profiling repository. This demonstrates the information that needs to be collected and maintained in order to record and demonstrate everything you need to know about a data source. This information is invaluable for use on application modifications or intended new uses. A specific organization may find additional information that can be added to this list to make it even more comprehensive.
Some of this information could be transferred to a formal metadata repository for permanent storage. However, be aware that formal repositories do not have constructs for all of the information listed in this appendix.
