Mosley says "As the premiere organization for data management professionals, DAMA seeks to lead the data management profession to maturity. One of the hallmarks of a mature profession is a common vocabulary with clearly understood definitions. DAMA offers the Dictionary to a field in great need of clarity in its terminology and semantics. We hope the Dictionary will be a useful tool for data management professionals, IT colleagues, managers, data stewards and business leaders. All these people share responsibility for data management, so it's very important for all parties to speak a common language." Deborah Henderson, President of DAMA International Foundation and VP Education and Research for DAMA International, believes the CD-ROM format will not only be easier to use than the traditional book format, it is also more compact and environmentally responsible. "Publishing this work on CD-ROM saves over 4000 pounds of paper and conservatively 700 pounds of Greenhouse gases."
