Data management body of knowledge
DAMA DMBOK is a comprehensive framework and guidebook that provides a standard for the principles, best practices, and competencies of data management. The DAMA DMBOK serves as a reference and educational resource for data management professionals, organisations, and academic institutions.
The DAMA DMBOK covers various aspects of data management, including data governance, data architecture, data modelling, data quality, and more. It provides a holistic view of the discipline and helps organisations establish effective data management practices to ensure data is properly governed, organised, and utilised.
The DAMA DMBOK is continuously updated and refined to keep up with evolving industry trends and advancements in data management. It serves as a common language and framework for professionals and organisations involved in managing and leveraging data effectively.

This collaborative process provides corporate friends with the opportunity to provide valuable feedback, influencing the future of data management and contributing to the development of the upcoming third edition of the DMBOK. This collaboration ensures that the DMBOK remains relevant and aligned with the evolving industry trends and the needs of data management professionals. As the international DAMA organisation works on a new version of the DMBOK, incorporating input from chapters worldwide, we have the collective ability to shape the future of data management.

Corporate friends have the opportunity to participate in specialised working groups dedicated to specific topics outlined in the DAMA DMBOK. These groups focus on areas such as data governance, data quality, gamification, and emerging topics that are not yet covered in the DMBOK, such as Data Mesh.
