Data Architects and Admins are moving into Content. Not a big suprise particularly in larger enterprises - with the big DB vendors moving into the space, and the barriers between structured and unstructured data slowly starting to fall, it makes perfect sense.
But for a DBA to pick up Information Architecture skills to equip them in managing unstructured data, its not so easy. There is a dearth of sources - and clearly a need for somebody (individual author - or vendor supported) to start to help bridge this gap. What limited resources there are, are good ones and with thanks to the authors I have listed them here:
- Bob Boiko's CM Bible - Chapters 24-30
- 'Object-Oriented Modelling and Design' by James Rumbaugh et al
- CMS Report by Tony Byrne - Appendix B (XML and CMS)
Most interested to hear of others!
