I’m going to be doing TWO presentations at DAMA Portland (OR) on Thursday, 24 February.  I so very much love visiting Portland and the members of this DAMA group are great for engaging and inspiring conversations during the presentations.

The topics I’m covering:


Career Success in Data Management during Turbulent Times

A workshop on issues and ideas that today’s data architects and modelers can do to build their careers and networking skills with other data management professionals.

Workshop topics will include:
• Demonstrating your expertise
• Building a portfolio of your success stories
• Getting others to sell your skills and business value
• Building & extending your data management skill set
• 10 Steps to highlighting you and your work

Bring your thoughts, ideas, and experiences.


This presentation talks about how to get others to help sell your skills, how networking (talking to people, not passing out business cards) can help you advance your project and your skills, and how to having a portfolio of great career data can help you demonstrate your professional abilities.


Starting with More than a Blank Page: Modeling with an Industry Standard Data Model

Have you ever considered using pre-existing pattern models to jump start your data modeling projects?  Have you considered purchasing proprietary models? Did you know that there are hundreds of models available to you for free or for minimal cost?

Many industry trade associations publish industry standard data models (ISDMs).  These models focus on the core and supporting business functions associated with retailing, health care, criminal justice and other industry sectors.  They may be provided free to the public or for just the cost of joining a trade association.

In this presentation, Karen discusses some of the benefits and gotchas of working with acquired models – industry standard models, patterns, and other universal model concepts.   This session includes topics such as:

  • The costs, benefits, and risks of working with industry standard data models
  • The benefits of using industry standards in your package acquisition projects
  • Choosing the right process
  • Myths in working with pattern models
  • 10 Tips for successfully working with third party models
  • What you should know before committing to project plans and estimates
  • Lessons Learned
  • Resources

Find out what other organizations are doing with industry standard data models — how vendors and industry organizations are partnering to set standards that your organization will want to leverage for better meet the business needs of your solutions.


I’ve added some more live examples of industry standard data models (ARTS and NIEM) to this presentation to help demonstrate typical data models that are prepared for industry-specific examples.

I hope you can join me in Portland.
