Can you trust your Enterprise Data? Where is it? What is it? Where did it come from?

Presented by Embarcadero Technologies and Informed Decisions

Organisations face continued significant growth in complexity, diversity and volume of enterprise data with more and more companies worldwide understanding that data governance offers the only strategic solution to this challenge. Enterprises drowning in data and disconnected from trusted data repositories need to break out of organisational silos and re-establish adequate coordination and controls. Metadata Modelling, Governance & Syndication technology enables collaborative content development and effective access to your Enterprise Information Map, the authoritative guide to an organisation’s information assets. By providing greater insight into the location, meaning and proper use of enterprise data, organisations can improve corporate data compliance and utilisation. Business users can now locate, interpret, and accurately utilise data as an enterprise asset thereby adding real value to the business. This workshop explores these issues and provides a pragmatic approach to resolve modern data architecture challenges.

In this on-demand webinar, Rick van der Lans, an international consultant and data modeling expert, shares his insights on several aspects of Agile data modeling, including:

  • The urgent need for Agile data modeling and how to use it to understand data
  • The impact of big data, self-service BI and NoSQL on data modeling
  • Tips for designing Agile data models and linking business concepts to them
