Hi David,

Broader artifacts are usually created or driven by those that have a bigger picture perspective of things, like Systems Engineers, Enterprise Architects, Application Architects/Designers, etc.  Remember, data is only a small piece of a broader system and most Data Architects/Designers/Engineers/Database Admins/etc. are not trained to deal with the broader/bigger picture.  For example, an Application Designer can design a complete system that includes Data (its definitions, structures, flows, interactions, conversions, etc.).  However, a Data person rarely can do the reverse.

My Best,

No, not to my knowledge.  Data Architects, Designers, and Modelers usually only create Dictionaries as a means of "defining" data through its traits.

I'm speechless.

I wonder who's responsible for the other systems artifacts... systems, programs, schema, etc?
