Data Management - Book of Knowledge (DMBoK)
A team of data management professionals produced "The DAMA Guide to the Data Management Body of Knowledge" (DAMA-DMBOK Guide), under the guidance of a DAMA-DMBOK Editorial Board. The publication was made available in April, 2009.
The “body of knowledge” about data management is quite large and constantly growing. The DAMA-DMBOK Guide provides a “definitive introduction” to data management. It defines a standard industry view of data management functions, terminology and best practices, without detailing specific methods and techniques. The DAMA-DMBOK is not a complete authority on any specific topic, but is on source of information from widely recognized publications, articles and websites for further reading. The figure below provides an overview of the major areas (bold) with some of the basics functions that described.
