I suspect that Strategic Data Architecture should really just be Data Architecture as the practice of data architecure should include strategies and techniques.Victortan 16:19, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Should this be under "Category:Data management"? siroχo 00:11, Jun 28, 2004 (UTC)

  • I made a category "Data management", since thats basically what this page was trying to be. This page should be expanded to talk about what the concept of data management is, rather than being a category-style page. siroχo 21:39, Jun 28, 2004 (UTC)

DM-BOK 2nd edition[edit]

DAMA International is working on a second edition of the Data Management DM-BOK (review until 4/2013, published in Q4/2013. One of the most important changes: "Data Governance is positioned as a unifying theory for all Data Management". In addition, the "history of Data Management in this article should be extended to cover also 1990-2010. Will come back to this with better time. [1]

Wrong statement![edit]

The statement "While data can exist as such, 'information' and 'knowledge' are always in the "eye" (or rather the brain) of the beholder and can only be measured in relative units." is not correct:

Data comes about through research, creation, gathering, and discovery. Information has context. Data is turned into information by … - organizing it so that we can easily draw conclusions - "presenting" it, such as making it visual or auditory (see Clark D. (2004), The Continuum of Understanding; retrieved January 30, 2009, from So the happening that data becomes information is not happening in the brain of someone... data becomes information as soon as it is visualized in a meaningfull way! But the knowledge which can be gathered by someone from this information is happening in the brain. Jogi, 04 February 2009

Damaged List of Topics in Data Management[edit]

I saw that list of Topics in Data Management is damaged. Some items (subcategories) is not under their categories. for example Data quality & Data quality assurance is beloging to Data Quality Category. I don't have knowledge to correct this issue. someone please correct it. Alisabzevari (talk) 08:07, 29 January 2009 (UTC)


What exactly makes "DAMA DMBOK Framework" a Framework ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:36, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

The first line reads "The monkeys definition provided by [[ppp] International, the professional organization for those in the data management profession..."

I'm pretty sure the monkeys did not define anything.

Also who provided the definition? I'm not certain what [[ppp] International stands for. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:27, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Contact Data Management[edit]

Contact Data Management is not a functional area within the DAMA-DMBOK and should be removed. Database Development is a functional area within the DAMA-DMBOD and should be added.
