In enterprise organizations, the value of data has been considered on strategic level for a long time. As valuable assets, data need to be managed from source to disposal, considering their whole life cycle. To guide the data managing needs of enterprise organizations, the non-profit organization DAMA promotes the development and practice of data management as key enterprise assets. In 2017, DAMA has published the second edition of the DAMA International Guide to Data Management Body of Knowledge (DAMA DMBOK®). While the DAMA DMBOK focuses on corporate data, the FAIR data principles target research data management involving researchers and publishers in Academia. Data management is also a core issue in the Government sector, which has a great relevance in the open government initiatives, supporting the civil society to follow the actions of government bodies. This article makes a systematic analysis of these three data natures – research data, corporate data and government data – and the respective sets of principles that act as a basis for their management. These principles are correlated to identify similarities and possible complementarities focusing on the improvement of research data management, represented by the FAIR initiative, proposing an initial framework to support it.
