The Data Architecture Summit agenda will focus on Data Architecture, Enterprise Data, Tech Arch, Data Governance, Enterprise Data Modeling, Data Stewardship, Master Data Management, Big Data, and Data Discovery.
We typically receive a large number of presentations to review, so it is not possible for us to accept all proposals.

Positive weighting is given to presentations that follow these best practices:

1Include a concise abstract outlining what attendees will learn and why/how it is useful to them.
2Devote the majority of your presentation to solutions, not overviews of common problems.
3Offer new subjects targeted to a specific audience: Management, Modeler, Analyst, or Enterprise Architect.
4Provide a first-hand, detailed case study from personal experience with lessons learned.
5Discuss a detailed management analysis and efficient cost/time-saving measures.
6Provide guidelines and roadmaps for organizations considering new solutions.
