    With increased adoption of Model-Driven Engineering, the number of related artefacts in use, such as models, metamodels and transformations, greatly increases. To confirm this, we present quantitative evidence from both academia — in terms of repositories and datasets — and industry — in terms of large domain-specific language ecosystems. To be able to tackle this dimension of scalability in MDE, we propose to treat the artefacts as data, and apply various techniques — ranging from information retrieval to machine learning — to analyse and manage those artefacts in a holistic, scalable and efficient way.
