April 2009 Archives

I'm at the Enterprise Data World in Tampa. It is sunny and not humid, the conference this year has been abuzz with the launch of "DAMA-DMBOK". For those of you who are wondering what this is, DAMA International (The Data Management Association) has been working with the community to develop a Data Management Body of Knowledge (DMBOK).

The DAMA Guide to the Data Management Body of Knowledge (DAMA-DMBOK)
By DAMA International. Written by over 120 data management practitioners, this is the most impressive compilation of data management principals and best practices, ever assembled.

From a audience perspective, it provides a concise guide to executives, data management professionals, educators, and researchers with a framework to manage their data and mature their information infrastructure. The DAMA-DMBOK provides information on: Data Governance, Data Architecture Management, Data Development, Database Operations Management, Data Security Management, Reference & Master Data Management, Data Warehousing & Business Intelligence Management, Document & Content Management, Meta Data Management, Data Quality Management, and Professional Development


I have read the DAMA-DMBOK and found it to be the equivalent of the PMBOK. If you are in the business of data management - that is Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence, I strongly recommend that you look at the DAMA-DMBOK. It has been developed for the community by the community.

For more information on the book, visit the DAMA-DMBOK webpage You can buy this at AMAZON.COM or at Technics.com
