Subject:                                     Your FIBO Data Model – upcoming new version

Dear FIB-DM User,

You are among three hundred people who downloaded the Financial Industry Business Data Model (FIB-DM).

I am Jurgen Ziemer, the Data Architect/Ontologist who derived the data model from the Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO).

There will be a new version of the Open Source Data Model coming out this spring. I plan to send new download links to active users via this distribution list, rather than having you submit the download form again.

Beyond model releases, I also want to update you on new FIB-DM LinkedIn posts, free data model education PowerPoints, the YouTube channel, and on occasion, the benefits of upgrading to the Full FIBO Data Model.

Breaking News: The Enterprise Data Management Council (EDMC) made FIB-DM the “official” FIBO Data Model. See the new FIB-DM external Product page on the EDMC website:     

The Global Association of Financial Institutions takes notice of you, council member data modelers leveraging their industry standard.

Thanks again for using the FIBO Data Model. I welcome your questions, comments, and suggestions about the model and user community.

Best regards
