On-Demand Webinar:
The Key to Big Data Modeling: Collaboration

Some claim that, in the age of Big Data, data modeling is less important or even not needed. However, with the increased complexity of the data landscape, it is actually more important to incorporate data modeling in order to understand the nature of the data and how they are interrelated. In order to do this effectively, the way that we do data modeling needs to adapt to this complex environment.

One of the key data modeling issues is how to foster collaboration between new groups, such as data scientists, and traditional data management groups. There are often different paradigms, and yet it is critical to have a common understanding of data and semantics between different parts of an organization.

In this presentation, Len Silverston  discusses:

  • How Big Data has changed our landscape and affected data modeling
  • How to conduct data modeling in a more ‘agile’ way for Big Data environments
  • How we can collaborate effectively within an organization, even with differing perspectives
