A panel of data management gurus shared their thoughts at a conference in London on November 9, 2005. This article is a summary of a discussion on the future of data management that included the author, Michael Scofield; Michael Brackett, a specialist in data resource design and remodeling; Alec Sharp, an author with expertise in process redesign; and Graeme Simsion, senior fellow, University of Melbourne and co-author of the book, Data Modeling Essentials. Many of these gentlemen will be presenters at the DAMA International conference to be held April 23-27 in Denver, Colorado.

The original topic posed to this panel was the future of data management (DM). However, I want to assert that the future of DM is somewhat irrelevant if you are not involved. Hence, I would like to reword the question to talk about your future in data management and in your enterprise.
