Advanced Data Modeling: Be Happier, Be More Valued and Add More Value

In this presentation, Karen will discuss the current state of data modeling and data architecture efforts and where we need to be in the current development and database environment to continue to provide value.  Topics will include: 

  • If the modeler isn’t happy, the data isn’t happy
  • Data Modeling in an Agile / SCRUM / modern development projects
  • Big Data and other euphemisms
  •  NoSQL, not-only SQL non-relational, post-relational or whatever you want to call them
  • Tools: Where are we, where do we need to be
  • Being physical doesn’t mean you have to get dirty
  • 10 Steps to happiness, being valuable and providing value

This presentation will be highly interactive, highly relevant and mostly irreverent.  As usual.
