With the data dictionary you can create a standardized place for your company's metrics where you can document any details about that metric such as the SQL to calculate, the definition in plain English, and anything else that may be relevant.

Once a metric is defined, you can tag that metric within the READMEs of resources that are related to that metric to create a bi-directional relationship . This will help anyone who is trying to learn about a certain metric as well as give them confidence that they are calculating a metric properly.
