Data Management Institute

DMI is a community for those who are involved in the management and protection of a business' most irreplaceable non-human asset: its data. Launched in May 2002, DMI has developed a worldwide presence and has begun defining Data Management as a specific IT discipline by training more than 800 Data Managers and Data Protection Specialists in the USA, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Portugal and South Africa. Recently, the organization launched a web portal for Data Managers at, where a Charter Membership program is currently underway. By completing an exhaustive questionnaire intended to capture information on problems and pain points in current storage and data management technologies, applicants will receive a free "sponsored" membership in DMI. Data collected in the effort will be used to produce an annual report on storage technology from the consumer's perspective. DMI has also begun work on a Purpose-Built Storage Initiative, intended to drive cost out of storage infrastructure by leveraging manageable arrays constructed from commodity components and designed by consumers to meet specific application workloads in a manageable way. The Initiative has garnered the attention and participation of leading storage component and software manufacturers including Seagate, Western Digital, Adaptec, Intel, Computer Associates, Tek-Tools, and many others.
