Meta-Data and Data Modeling Summit

Orlando Florida, 2/27 - 3/1/2006

DebTech put on a nice conference.

I was able to hear Claudia Imhoff speak on "Sarbanes-Oxley - A Legislative Mandate for Business Intelligence!";
Tom Haughey gave a great tutorial on Advanced Modeling;
Bonnie O'Neil gave us examples and tools for building a Data Dictionary with "whatever is lying around".

Dave Hay waxed philosophical on "Data Model Patterns" and "Advanced Data Model Patterns";
and Steve Hoberman brought us back to concreteness.

Malcolm Chisholm gave a couple of good talks on Repositories (Build or Buy) and "Master Data Management vs. Reference Data Management".

David Schlesinger gave us some great ideas of how to facilitate a sane regulatory compliance and information security strategy with some simple metadata techniques.

I found myself wishing it would last a little longer.

Bonnie O'Neil infected me with her energy and enthusiasm.

Dave Hay took us back to Aristotle's "Posterior Analytics" and modeled semantics and made me want his new book "Data Model Patterns - A Metadata Map" (not to be confused with his 1995 title "Data Model Patterns: Conventions of Thought"). He also humbled me with his dazzling display of Origami expertise.

Thank you all for an edifying and fun experience.
