The new content in this issue covers important information about Data Governance and Information Governance, Enterprise Architecture, Data Quality Projects and more. Please let me know your thoughts on these articles and let me know if you are interested in publishing an article in a future issue.

The January issue contains articles from Bob Seiner (me! the next chapter of the Data Governance series), Larry English, Noreen Kendle, Scott Benson, Tom Rathburn, and Diby Malakar. This issue also contains new feature columns from Craig Mullins, Steve Hoberman, and Bob Dominko as well as a new special feature from Tim Feetham. The rest of the publication has been updated including a book review of Mike Gorman’s book, an overhauled list of data-oriented conferences through 2008, updates to the book list of several reader-suggested books published in ’08’, ‘07’ and ‘06’, business resource list, companies and products list and more.
