Leong-Hong, Belkis; Marron, Beatrice
A Data Element Dictionary/Directory (DED/D) is a software tool that is used to control and manage data elements in a uniform manner. It can serve data base administrators, systems analysts, software designers, and programmers by providing a central repository for information about data resources across organization and application lines. This report describes and classifies DED/D systems and discusses the potential benefits from their use. A technical profile of seven commercially-available DED/D systems is presented with side-by-side exposition of technical features. (Author)
