Dictionary of Data Management Now Available!

The DAMA Dictionary of Data Management is now available for purchase through as a CD-ROM (it's a PDF file -- this way it's easy to search the file for the terms you need). Thanks to our publisher Steve Hoberman of Technics Publications for making this possible. Proceeds go to the DAMA Foundataion to fund other projects to advance the profession.

This is Version 1 of the Dictionary. I believe it is a good baseline, but it certainly can be improved. The DMBOK chapter authors are revising some definitions and adding some terms, and these revisions will appear in Version 2, released with the first release of the DAMA-DMBOK Guide (as its Glossary) in early 2009.

If you have recommended revisions, please let me know, so I can evaluate and incorporate them into Version 2. THANKS!
