The Data Architecture Summit will cover the most important issues and technologies enabling the design and management of a modern Data Architecture.
Data Architecture has long been at the intersection of business and technology. The role of the Data Architect is to interpret the language and objectives of business sponsors into designs that can be implemented by the technical experts and vice versa, they translate system designs and technological capabilities to the needs of the organization. Recently, this job has become more challenging (and interesting!) with the emergence of Big Data, the Cloud, Data Science, new Database technologies, and Data Governance.
The goal of the Data Architecture Summit is to provide a comprehensive educational program that defines the essential elements of a modern Data Architecture, and explains how you can create it for your own organization. Whether you’re looking to build or buy your new architecture, the Data Architecture Summit will provide the essential knowledge and language to understand the options. If you know you need to re-tool or upgrade your current architecture, attend this event and you’ll leave with a comprehensive understanding of your technology and design options and real-world advice on planning a smooth migration from industry professionals.
You’ll learn about these critical aspects of modern Data Architecture:

Hackolade produces a unique data modeling software for NoSQL and multi-model databases, built to leverage the power of nested objects and polymorphic nature of JSON. Data modeling becomes harder when shifting from the well-known process of designing normalized application-agnostic databases to the new world of dynamic schemas for application-specific NoSQL databases. Enterprises still need to create the blueprint of applications, and facilitate the dialog between analysts, architects, designers, developers, and DBAs. Hackolade includes forward- and reverse-engineering functions, flexible HTML documentation of models, generation of massive test data, and suggestions for denormalization of SQL schemas. Hackolade supports data modeling for leading NoSQL databases, including MongoDB, AWS DynamoDB, Couchbase, Azure Cosmos DB, Elasticsearch, HBase, Cassandra, Google Firebase and Firestore. More databases will be added soon, including for property graphs and RDF triples.
