About the Webinar
Efforts to improve computer software have led to the general use of certain methodologies, such as the Agile System Development Lifecycle, that are extremely focused on software coding. Even common technologies used for Big Data analytics, such as Hadoop and commodity disc storage, require additional programmer attention to implement capabilities that used to be handled by relational database management systems and (the) smart disc. How are organizations that are successfully “data driven” changing to focus on data-centric development?
This webinar will discuss:
- The focus on programming in Agile development
- How to include a data focus in Agile development
- The focus on programming in Big Data
- Using conceptual data modeling to make development data-centric
- The data-centric development life-cycle
