Data Modeling 101

Data Modeling creates a visual representation of a data system as a whole or as parts of it. The goal is to communicate the kinds of data being used and saved within the system. A data model should also show the data’s relationships, how the data can be organized, and the formats used. A data model can […]

Primary Data Modeling Techniques

Data Modeling techniques are used to create a map or blueprint showing how an organization gathers and processes data. Data models help to define the logical structure for an organization’s data. Data Modeling techniques are necessary for businesses wanting to maximize and streamline their ability to analyze and understand data. While developing the model, the […]

How to Become a Data Engineer

In 2020, an estimated 64.2 zettabytes of data were generated globally, and by 2025, that number is expected to rise to 180 zettabytes. Considering these figures, it’s no surprise that data professionals are in high demand. Those who know how to create the Data Architecture to manage this data are the most in demand – […]

The Future of Database Management Systems

As the amount of data generated globally grows exponentially, data-driven businesses are increasingly turning to more innovative database management systems to store, manage, and process all that data. This article provides an overview of database management, how it has evolved – especially during the COVID-19 pandemic – and the future of database management systems.  What Is […]

Measuring Data Consistency

Measuring data consistency can tell a researcher how valuable and useful their data is. However, the term “data consistency” can be confusing. There are three versions of it. When the term is applied to databases, it describes data consistency within the database. When used with computing strategies, data consistency is focused on the use of […]

Data Modeling Tools

Data Modeling tools assist in creating a data model. Data Modeling was initially the process of creating a framework within a database that allowed data to be stored and researched using the data’s relationships. However, the term “Data Modeling” has expanded to include software engineering. A well-designed database (or app) makes the system more efficient, reduces […]

Databases vs. Hadoop vs. Cloud Storage

How can an organization thrive in the 2020s, a changing and confusing time with significant Data Management demands and platform options such as data warehouses, Hadoop, and the cloud? Trying to save money by bandaging and using the same old Data Architecture ends up pushing data uphill, making it harder to use. Rethinking data usage, storage, and computation is […]

Graph Databases: An Overview

The concept of graph databases traces back to Leonhard Euler. Euler was an 18th century Swiss mathematician who made several important discoveries in mathematics, such as infinitesimal calculus. In solving the “Seven Bridges of Königsberg” problem in 1736, Euler laid the foundations for graph theory. (He also got a fun shout-out in Hidden Figures when […]
