Provenance tackles problems as: provides information to a user about his data that are given to him or passed by him; informs a user in which way a foreign user has used his data; allows rollback mechanisms on wrong data; observes the currentness of data for closed contracts and creates a history of data for a user. We show that with a sophisticated metadata support these problems can be solved.
