    Learn about Hybrid Cloud Data Architecture @ DAMAPDX

    Montgomery Park

    As hybrid clouds become more prevalent, IT organizations struggle to deal with moving and managing data. While computation and applications can be outsourced, once data is generated, IT is on the hook to control it as long as it exists. Data governance and data security are particularly difficult to address in hybrid environments.

    Parth Patel will discuss the importance of creating a standardized data fabric with a common data management platform that can tier access, providing hierarchical data lifecycle management for data lakes. Also included are a discussion of “in production” use cases of this tiered data lake approach for Hybrid “Ground to Cloud” environments across multiple industries.

    Topics during this session include: · Data governance · Data security · Hybrid “Cloud to Ground” architectures · Metadata management

    Join us at 8:30 for a continental breakfast and networking with other local data professionals. Parth's Hybrid Cloud Data Architecture presentation starts at 9 and goes to 11:30. Free parking available in the main Montgomery Park surface lot.

    Speaker

    Parth Patel is a Big Data Solutions Engineer at Zaloni. He has extensive experience in architecting analytics-ready next-generation data lakes incorporating on-premise or public cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP) infrastructure to meet enterprise needs. Parth brings a wide range of experience with various big data technologies, data analytics tools, and mobile applications, leveraging previous experience in network solutions architecting for Orologic, and Vitesse, as well as a technology advisory role at Dunkin’ Brands for their retail technology platform.

    How Automation Can Help You Implement Governed Data Discovery @DAMAPDX

    Montgomery Park

    In today’s age of analytics, businesses are demanding self-service access to their corporate data, while struggling to make sense of raw data at the source. In response to this, recent analyst reports have revealed a new form of BI architecture known as Governed Data Discovery. These architectures are immense data structures that, while able to address recent needs, are daunting for even large teams of BI professionals to build using traditional methods. However, with the use of automation software, these structures can be built and maintained by just one person with some data modeling experience. We will go into detail about some of the driving factors of Governed Data Discovery and explain how leading automation software can enable even small organizations to benefit from this approach.

    What Attendees Will Learn from Presentation:

    • The different factors driving Governed Data Discovery including the Gap between Business and IT.
    • What is Governed Data discovery? What does this type of data architecture look like?
    • How Automation software can address the challenges in building & maintaining such an architecture.

    Summary

    We live in a world of Big Data, trying to make sense of it to deliver Business Intelligence. We have the promise of NOSQL and Applied Data Science to deliver some solutions. In dealing with today's challenges we need some new and different ways of thinking. Do we still need Conceptual models? How do they continue to benefit us? What are the limitations of relational models, and how do we overcome them? What are the best strategies for preparing and presenting data model diagrams to support meaningful conversations with our business partners? How do our data modeling tools help? How is the data warehouse environment evolving? Are we beyond dimensional models? How do we work with NOSQL tools and schema-less databases? Do these environments still need data modeling? What is a Data Lake and how do we manage it?

    Dr. Gordon Everest will explore these questions and provide some insight for dealing with issues surrounding the role of data modeling in the world we live in today. His presentation will provide some new strategies and approaches. His presentations are always lively and will challenge our thinking.

    PRESENTATION OUTLINE

    • DATA MODELING – Beyond the basics, and beyond relational
    • ADVANCED DATA MODELING CONCEPTS AND CONSTRUCTS
    • NORMALIZATION – Myths. The biggest problem with ER/Relational/Object modeling.
    • DATA MODEL PRESENTATION
    • FOCUS ON DATA WAREHOUSING and more

    Includes (but not limited to):

    • Architecture of the Operational environment – ODS, staging (ETL), where is data cleansing?
    • Dimensional modeling, fact and dimension tables, cube, star schema and snowflake ◦Fact tables and dimension tables - should they be normalized?
    • Business Intelligence (BI), Analytics, data mining, OLAP
    • And now the "Data Lake" (from Bill Inmon) or perhaps a "Data Swamp"!
    • NOSQL – rationale and motivation, Schema-less or "schema on read"? ◦Type of Tools: Key value pair, multi-column, (directed?) graph, "document" (XML…)
    • Data modeling in a NOSQL environment. Do we still need data modelers?
    • Emerging role of the data analyst/scientist

    Speaker

    Dr. Gordon C. Everest is Professor Emeritus of MIS and Data Management in the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. He is actively engaged in the world of data modeling and data management, speaking to computer professional societies and consulting with large and small organizations. Early retirement has allowed him to focus on helping organizations improve their understanding and approach to data modeling. He continues to teach a course in advanced data modeling at the University of Minnesota. It is fully online and available to working professionals as well as students. (http://geverest.umn.edu). He is an astute observer and interpreter of developments and trends in information technology, data management, and particularly business data modeling.
