Rather than being the data in question itself, metadata defines information related to that data. It includes time of data creation, the creator of the data, and data format.
When metadata is utilized, for example, data can be extracted with respect to a specified data and creator; therefore, it becomes useful when retrieving information from a huge amount of data and when organizing data in storage.
