Please join us for a presentation
from our very own long-time DAMA-PS Member Larry Burns!   

Larry's book, Building the Agile Database, will be published soon,  and he will be conducting a half-day workshop based on the book at TDWI in San Diego.  Here's your chance to get a local sneak peek!

In this presentation, we'll some of the key topics from the book, and focusing on the most important “lessons learned” for data management professionals.  Among the topics that will be covered:
  • The difference between the logical and physical views of data
  • The “value equation” of application development and data management
  • Data managers as intermediaries
  • Maximizing the business value of data
  • Object-oriented, model-driven, and test-driven development
  • The importance of data virtualization
  • The “refactoring paradox”, and how to resolve it
  • Developing an “Agile Attitude”
  • How to promote good data management practices in your organization
Writing and researching this book has been an educational experience for Larry and he's looking forward to to sharing some of this information with you (but you still have to buy the book!).  Join us for a fun and informative evening!
