DAMA International - Calgary Chapter

DAMA Calgary Association continues meeting online...


Upcoming 2021 sessions:


  • January 21st first public meeting of '21:
    Subject:
    Managing Data for the 'Internet of Things'


Data is central to the "internet of things". All data communicated between devices has architecture and requires rigorous design and definition. Good design considers relationships among devices, specific business-related transactions, the content of messages, and the logic in automated decision-making. Care must be taken when replacing human awareness and judgment with software logic.


Presented by Michael Scofield MBA, Clinical Professor at Loma Linda University, California USA

Michael is a long-time supporter of, and presenter to, DAMA International chapters around the world.



  • February 18th - at Noon MT
    Subject: Introduction to Data Modeling by Steve Hoberman, DMC


Data modeling is about understanding the data used within our operational and analytics processes, documenting this knowledge in a precise form called the “data model”, and then validating this knowledge through communications with both business and IT stakeholders. Underlying all successful applications is a robust and precise data model, and similarly, most software development failures are due to a lack of understanding of the data or data requirements.


Learn all about data models and why they are so important for software development and for business communication. We will cover the basic components of a data model and the different types of data models that exist.    Please join us for this interactive session!
