The 42nd issue of The Data Administration Newsletter (TDAN.com) was announced on October 1, 2007. As you may know, TDAN.com celebrated its 10th Anniversary in July of 2007. New articles are now being loaded monthly rather than quarterly and the movement is toward MORE CONTENT MORE OFTEN.

The November volume contains several new articles including ones from Scott Benson, Larry Burns, John Singer and Stephan Streitberger. The October volume included articles from myself (Bob Seiner – The Stewardship Approach to Data Governance Chapter 7), Graeme Simsion, Michael Gorman, David Eddy, … and much more. This issue also contains new columns from Mullins, Hoberman, Dominko and DAMA International (Schley). The rest of the publication has been updated as well including a book review of Gorman’s book, an updated list of data-oriented conferences through 2008, updates to the book list of several top books published in late ’06 and in ’07, business resource list, companies and products list and more. The quote of the week and the 5 data oriented news stories continue to be updated regularly.
