In a recent DAMA-International (DAMA-I) board meeting, the board members were polled to suggest a motto or mission statement for DAMA. There were many suggestions provided, but all of them could be summarized in the words: "Inspiring the delivery of data management excellence." Let's focus on "inspiring" and "delivering." It seems that the key vehicle for inspiring and delivering in today's business world is the Internet. DAMA's Web site has always been a focal point for finding data management excellence. Anyone visiting can find seminars, classes, symposia, reference reading, data management experts and other relevant information. Our Web site offers everything from the conceptual to the pragmatic. From one perspective, the viewer can browse life cycle approaches, meta data structures and integration strategies. From a more pragmatic view, the site provides information for running a chapter, leads to data-oriented jobs opportunities or experts available for speaking or consulting.

However, DAMA realizes that having such resources available to you is not enough. In today's e-world, Web information must not only be available, but also be dynamic, interactive and flexible. To meet this challenge, the DAMA Web site is being transformed into a new format and infrastructure. By teaming up with, we have produced a new look and feel so you can better understand and use our services.
