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.
The equivalent of the PMBOK or the BABOK, the DAMA-DMBOK provides information on:
-Data Architecture Management
-Database Operations Management
-Data Security Management
-Reference & Master Data Management
-Data Warehousing & Business Intelligence Management
-Document & Content Management
-Meta Data Management
-Data Quality Management
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.
