A Recommendation for a Professional Focus Area in Data Management for the IS2002 Information Systems Model Curriculum
Longenecker, Herbert E., Jr.; Yarbrough, David M.; Feinstein, David L.
Information Systems Education Journal, v8 n68 Aug 2010
IS2002 has become a well defined standard for information systems curricula. The Data Management Association (DAMA 2006) curriculum framework defines a body of knowledge that points to a skill set that can enhance IS2002. While data management professionals are highly skilled individuals requiring as much as a decade of relevant experience before being hired, principles of the profession are a good fit with the requirements for an information systems analyst. The life-cycle relationships of data management professionals to other IT professionals suggest that information systems education and experience can provide an excellent career path to data management. Based on these observations recommendations are made to add a new professional emphasis area in data management and to add data quality, architecture and metadata concepts and practices to the IS2002 learning units.
