Definition – “Metadata is data that describes other data“. This is very apt for AEM as well.

Hover on the asset and click on the properties to view the metadata. Whenever an asset is uploaded into AEM, default metadata is generated and saved.
Use case: Need for metadata which is not out of the box.
