Presented by Anthony Algmin
Cloud technologies offer an array of capabilities that can transform your organization’s relationship with data. From the basics — like provisioning servers that exist only as long as batch workloads are processing — to complex, serverless, event-driven designs that instantly scale to changing demands, cloud technologies enable us to process and prepare data much more efficiently, and with effectively unlimited scalability.
This has significant implications for Data Architects. First, since the tools are virtual, and the interfaces entirely software-based, we can apply and iterate new architecture designs much more quickly than ever before. This power, however, results in a need for ever-better collaboration and communication between Architects and the Application Developers and others that will provide or consume data from these cloud systems.
Those attending this session will learn:
- Some of the key data capabilities the cloud provides
- Design paradigms for managing Data Architecture in the cloud
- The differences between being a “cloud” Data Architect versus a “traditional” Data Architect
- Where the cloud may make things more challenging compared with on-premises data environments
