We envision OpenMetadata to be a community driven facility. Your input, opinion, and support will play an essential role in the direction the portal will take. We have numerous ideas and options in terms of tools and services and need your assistance in identifying which are most valuable and useful, and most importantly which are the ones we have not though about. Your feedback is therefore invaluable to us. Do not hesitate to contact us or use options available in the various web pages and applications.
OpenMetadata was launched in initial content gathered from various public repositories and manually captured. We will continue to grow and maintain this information, it is far from being comprehensive and we greatly appreciate any contribution you might have in terms of adding content. We also live in a very dynamic world and things change on a daily basis. Keeping things up to date is therefore a significant challenge and we welcome your inputs in terms of correcting information or improving its overall quality. If you are a large data or metadata holders, we also encourage you to contact us directly if you wish for some of your information to be exposed through the OpenMetadata portal.
Donation & Sponsorship
Operating OpenMetadata requires funding. Our long term plan is to have, in addition to free features, pay as you go advanced or personalized services that will generate revenues for growing the site and expanding its capabilities. We also expect, as it has been the case so far, for a significant portion of the underlying components to be implemented through partners projects or internal research. In the meantime though, most of the costs are absorbed by our companies, MTNA and IDMS. We therefore greatly appreciate any level of in cash contribution that can be safely made online through Paypal or arranged by contacting us directly. We also offer a sponsorship program for selected tools and services available to institutions interested in advertising or expressing support.
