Data Model Patterns, A Metadata Map

This is Dave Hay's new book. Its an application of Information Technology techniques to the business of Information Technology. I was able to hear about the book from Mr. Hay at a seminar in February before the book came out; and his presentations were so compelling that I had to have it. The book was definitely worth the wait.

Its organized along the lines of the Zachman Architecture Framework, with a few tunings of his own; and goes along building data models; the first one is a data model of a data model (hmm, maybe thats why Aristotle is on the cover).

It sounds esoteric, but I found it invaluable in refining my own metamodel and catching some nuances I had missed.

For a flavor of what the book is like, check out Mr. Hay's articles in TDAN, especially the one about Modeling Baseball Cards.
