About the Webinar
Because every organization produces and propagates data as part of their day-to-day operations, data trends are becoming more and more important in the mainstream business world’s consciousness. For many organizations in various industries, though, comprehension of this development begins and ends with buzzwords: “Big Data”, “NoSQL”, “data scientist”, and so on. Few realize that any and all solutions to their business problems, regardless of platform or relevant technology, rely to a critical extent on the data model supporting them. As such, data modeling is not an optional task for an organization’s data effort, but rather a vital activity that facilitates the solutions driving your business.
Instead of the technical minutiae of data modeling, this webinar will focus on its value and practicality for your organization. In doing so, we will:
- Address fundamental data modeling methodologies, their differences and various practical applications, and trends around the practice of data modeling itself
- Discuss abstract models and entity frameworks, as well as some basic tenets for application development
- Examine the general shift from segmented data modeling to more business-integrated practices
