About the Webinar
Every organization produces and consumes data. Because data is so important to day to day operations, data trends are hitting the mainstream and businesses are adopting buzzwords such as Big Data, NoSQL, data scientist, etc., to seek solutions for their fundamental issues. Few realize that the importance of any solution, regardless of platform or technology, relies on the data model supporting it. Data modeling is not an optional task for an organization’s data effort. It is a vital activity that supports the solutions driving your business.
This webinar will address fundamental data modeling methodologies, as well as trends around the practice of data modeling itself. We will discuss abstract models and entity frameworks, as well as the general shift from data modeling being segmented to becoming more integrated with business practices.
- How are anchor modeling, data vault, etc. different and when should I apply them?
- Integrating data models to business models and the value this creates
- Application development (Data first, code first, object first)
