    Businesses make critical decisions using key data assets, but stakeholders often find it difficult to navigate the complex data landscape to ensure they have the right data and understand it correctly. Companies are dealing with a number of different technologies, multiple data formats, and high data volumes, along with the requirements for data security and governance. How can organizations successfully address these challenges?

    Knowing where the data is and what it means is of paramount importance, and this requires good data models accurately represent the business. Data modeling has transformed from “big design up front” to become more flexible and agile, to give businesses better visibility and value for data assets.

    Industry analyst Carl Olofson and Embarcadero product manager Ron Huizenga will discuss data modeling trends and topics including:
    Current benefits of data modeling for businesses of all sizes
    Evolution of agile workflow for modeling – moving away from the waterfall approach
    Incorporating non-relational data sources (e.g. Hadoop, NoSQL) into a complex data architecture
    Encouraging collaboration across the organization while keeping assets secure
