Karen Lopez - 

State of the Union of Data Modeling

April 14th at SRP


Hello DAMA Phoenix members!  We are looking forward to an exciting 2016 for DAMA Phoenix, and are kicking off the year with a very dynamic speaker.
We are very happy to have Karen Lopez of InfoAdvisors present on Apr 14.  Karen is a very well known and highly regarded practitioner in data management.  Karen is an international speaker on various topics, including data modeling and process modeling,

the Zachman framework, and information privacy.  Karen believes 2016 holds a great outlook for data management.
At our 2016 meeting Karen’s topic is trends and predictions within the data management discipline and the data industry.  Karen will discuss data modeling topics, and include data management innovations resulting from the introduction of disruptive technologies such as NoSQL and Hadoop.  Attendees will understand the impact of these innovations on their daily work, plus understand how to prioritize their professional development for new challenges occurring in data management and data modeling.
We look forward to you joining us for this exciting session, presented by a very informative and engaging speaker.



Karen Lopez has more than twenty years of experience helping large organizations manage large, multi-project information technology programs. She's a project manager and data architect, specializing in being practical and getting stuff done over allegiances to methodologies or check lists.

Most of her work has been on turnaround projects: helping teams get back to the original goals quickly, but not sacrificing security, reliability or flexibility. Karen loves her work and enjoys networking with others who have experiences to share.

She wants you to love your data.
