About the Webinar
To co-opt an old adage: “If data gets lost and no one knows where to find it, does it still take up hard-drive space?” In the interest of avoiding that unfortunate philosophical end, individual data structures enable sorting, storage, and organization of data so that it can be retrieved and used efficiently. Applying the correct data structure to different types of data—whether master, reference, or analytics—allows your organization to tailor its data management to fit its unique business needs.
In this webinar, we will:
- Discuss the various data structures available and when to use each one, as well as different design styles for analytics
- Illustrate how data structures should support your organizational data strategy
- Demonstrate how each method can contribute to business value
