The DAMA Guide to the Data Management Body of Knowledge (1st ed,)


    Until very recently, data management in most IT departments has been largely ignored as a formal discipline. This lack of understanding has brought us to a point today where the biggest problems in most major IT projects revolve around data integration and information management. DAMA has now addressed this problem by creating the DAMA Data Management Guide to the Body of Knowledge (DAMA-DMBOK) – the first "authoritative resource" for data management best practices in 40 years of IT practice.

    The DAMA-DMBOK was published on April 5th 2009. It is an industry-wide effort, compiled by more than 120 data management practitioners from around the world.
