Vendor Neutrality Statement

DAMA International is a vendor-neutral organisation. If we endorse something, it means that we consider it to be relevant to our members and the wider Data Management community. This means that we do not endorse any person, organisation, good or service as being better than another, or as being the best, and any such interpretation will be denied by us and could lead to the withdrawal of the endorsement.
