There are a lot of professional online communities out there and it’s always tough to decide whether joining one will give you access to what you are looking for. However, if you think about it, the power of these online discussions and interactions comes from leveraging the multiple experiences of individuals who play similar roles in industry or have worked through similar challenges and opportunities. Sometimes you are the one sharing your knowledge on the topic to help others and that sure feels good. Knowledge share is a beautiful exchange that happens and it is a benefit to us professionally and personally.
Join in <link to membership form> on our discussions and be a part of the association of your peers that are all talking about what you have in common, Data Management. Below are just a few more reasons why you should join the community of data management professionals.
1. Getting to the information you need as a technology leader There is no shortage of resources for gathering and distributing relevant information but not all have the ability to connect you with your peers in Data Management. Some are so open, you can get advice from a broad number of people but often with no real knowledge of what their background is or if they are more interested in business leads and promoting their product. To leverage the experience of individuals that are in your position or have been there before is not an easy thing to accomplish. Even if you find a relevant thread it seems time consuming to filter through the spam messages and marketing tactics to get the information you are looking for. This is not the case with our site. DMPs membership qualification criteria raises the bar such that only qualified professionals and Data Management leaders can participate. This helps us to ensure that information sharing comes from reliable sources.
2. Thrive in an environment free of vendors and salespeople! Since we do not allow vendors or salespeople to join the association you can fee confident that all onversations are free of intentional vendor bias or with the goal of selling you a product. At times we invite a vendor to speak about their product from a pure solution perspective with member education as the goal but vendors are otherwise not permitted to attend out events.
3. Get trustworthy advice. If it's time for your organization to make an important buying decision and you are looking to speak to others that have already gone through a similar process, we can connect you with like minded peers. What better way to get valid feedback on vendors, processes, and even buying recommendations. Switch the shoe to the other foot, you can also be an advocate having gone through a project and sharing your experience with others.
