DMBOK 2 Context Diagrams

The DAMA International DMBOK Version 2 has an amazing series of images and diagrams that have been updated and added to since DMBOK 1. The most popular of these images in DMBoK 1 were the context diagrams, so DAMA International have decided to provide members downloadable images for these - negating the need to rebuild them.

The DMBOK would not be the same without a wheel diagram. So click on the heading above to get your Wheel images. Do look further though, at the Evolved Wheel. This is the DAMA International evolved image of what Data Management looks like and how all these functions interact together. Please share with your team and colleagues.
