Businesses rely on knowing their data to survive and grow. Metadata Management and Master Data Management (MDM) provide essential processes for organizations to gain this knowledge and to succeed. As a result, both need to be managed well.

Large engineering projects, such as the engineering development of computers, involve a large number of activities and require cooperation across a number of departments. The Callisto project was born out of realization that the classical approaches to project management do not provide sufficient functionally to manage large engineering projects. Callisto was initiated as a research effort to explore project scheduling, control and configuration problems during the engineering prototype development of large computer systems and to devise intelligent project management tools that facilitate the documentation of project management expertise and its reuse from one project to another. In the first phase of the project, rule-based prototypes were used to build quick prototypes of project management expertise and the project management knowledge required to support expert project managers.
