To know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight, to receive instruction in wise dealing, in righteousness, justice, and equity; to give prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the youth- Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance, to understand a proverb and a saying, the words of the wise and their riddles. Proverbs 1:2-6

I am a Information Quality Certified Professional (IQCP), Principal Consultant in Data & Information Management, Speaker and Chief Data Officer wannabe. My personal Data Manifesto, words I live by:

1.    Thou shalt always respect and consider the context.

2.    Thou shalt love thy (meta) data. Data is the ultimate proprietary asset, respect its owners

3.    Thou shalt stop centering apps over data, stop the tight coupling between function and data

4.    Thou shalt strive for accurate, relevant, timely, consistent & accessible data

5.    Thou shalt make a ‘fundamentalistic’ separation between facts and context

6.    Thou shalt not forsake Time

7.    Thou shalt never mix up Data Architecture and Technology Architecture

8.    Thou shalt uphold, improve & teach the science and practice of information- & Data modelling

9.    Thou shalt separate the concerns of the conceptual, the logical and physical 

10.    Thou shalt Specify, Standardize, Automate & Productize

11.    Thou cannot buy thy way out of the data misery thou art in

And finally

12.    Thou shalt give praise to the new saviour. Its name is Hadoop & it calls to us from its mountain:
‘We got a lake and thou shalt throw all thy data in it. The water will be clean so thou can drink it, the water will flow so i twill irrigate thou lands, grow thou stock, feed thou kids and of course bring thou world peace’ 

Nah kidding…strike the last one. 

Over 15 years of international experience in the field.
