Using Modeling Techniques and Strategies for Corporate Benefit

Over the past 20 years, the role of data architects and modelers has changed significantly. Many initiatives are now business-driven as opposed to IT-driven, significantly changing the dynamics of solution delivery. This is compounded by complex environments consisting of a variety of solutions on disparate platforms. Corporate governance is also a growing concern, driving Data Governance, Data Quality and Master Data Management activities. 

Today's data architect must be prepared to address all these needs across business and IT. Join this session to learn about:

  • Team dynamics and changes in methodologies within IT
  • Defining an enterprise modeling strategy in a complex environment
  • Modeling techniques to help address these initiatives
