The vision of DAMA is to support an empowered global community of information professionals.

Take a look at what will be discussed in this session:

Speaker: Howard Diesel – President of DAMA South Africa
Topic: DMBOK V2 – What’s IN and What’s OUT

Version 2 has just been released and there is a lot of interest in what has changed and why! At the next meeting, Howard will be doing a comparison between V1 & V2 to present the major differences and enhancements that have been developed in V2.
The structure of the DMBok remains largely unchanged with the advent of a new Knowledge Area – Data Integration and Interoperability and the renaming of Data Development to Data Modelling and Design. Lots of changes to the activities, deliverables and metrics.

Join DAMA for the comparison and we will then discuss the why the changes were introduced.
