Written by over 120 data management practitioners, the DAMA Guide to the Data Management Body of Knowledge (DAMA-DMBOK) is the most impressive compilation of data management principals and best practices, ever assembled. It provides data management and IT professionals, executives, knowledge workers, educators, and researchers with a framework to manage their data and mature their information infrastructure. This print edition is also available in electronic PDF format on a CD (see ISBN 9780977140084). The equivalent of the PMBOK or the BABOK, 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 Professional Development As an authoritative introduction to data management, the goals of the DAMA-DMBOK Guide are: To build consensus for a generally applicable view of data management functions. To provide standard definitions for commonly used data management functions, deliverables, roles, and other terminology. To document guiding principles for data management. To present a vendor-neutral overview to commonly accepted good practices, widely adopted methods and techniques, and significant alternative approaches. To clarify the scope and boundaries of data management. To act as a reference which guides readers to additional resources for further understanding. From the Foreword by John Zachman: The book is an exhaustive compilation of every possible subject and issue that warrants consideration in initiating and operating a Data Management responsibility in a modern Enterprise. It is impressive in its comprehensiveness. It not only identifies the goals and objectives of every Data Management issue and responsibility but it also suggests the natural organizational participants and end results that should be expected. The publication began as a non-trivial, sorely needed compilation of articles and substantive facts about the little understood subject of data management orchestrated by some folks from the DAMA Chicago Chapter. It was unique at the time as there was little substantive reference material on the subject. It has grown to become this pragmatic practitioners handbook that deserves a place on every Data Management professionals bookshelf. There is a wealth of information for the novice data beginner, but it is also invaluable to the old timer as a check-list and validation of their understanding and responsibilities to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks! It is impressive in it breadth and completeness. The DAMA-DMBOK Guide deserves a place on every Data Management professionals bookshelf and for the General Manager, it will serve as a guide for setting expectations and assigning responsibilities for managing and practicing what has become the very most critical resource owned by an Enterprise as it (the Enterprise) progresses into the Information Age: DATA!
