The Key to Big Data Modeling: Collaboration

Wednesday, August 26, 2015
11:00am Pacific / 1:00pm Central / 2:00pm Eastern

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 will discuss:

  • 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

Breaking Down Business Barriers with Enterprise Architecture - Sl...

Below is the slide presentation from our recent webinar Breaking Down Business Barriers with Enterprise Architecture.

As a data professional, you know how important it is to have good data models and to ensure that your extended team has access to them. Many companies are suffering from silos that keep valuable data from being used effectively because business users may not have the right access or understanding of the data they are using to make decisions. When corporate data has business context with centralized communication and collaboration, the overall integrity and visibility of the data can be improved.

To create a business-driven data architecture, you need an enterprise data environment that enables both business stakeholders and IT users to access and collaborate on key models and metadata, at the right levels for their needs. Embarcadero offers the ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition with the Team Server web portal to help you break down the barriers between business and IT users in your organization. Join this webinar to see how the ER/Studio Team Server works with the Enterprise Team Edition to extend the value of data in your organization, with capabilities including:

  • Business glossaries to specify the terms and definitions for metadata
  • Discussion and activity streams to track requests and actions for tasks
  • Permission structures to give users and groups the right level of access

About the Presenter:

Josh Buckner is the ER/Studio Team Server Solutions Expert for Embarcadero. He helps customers understand the benefits of Team Server and works with them to implement it effectively in their organizations.
