The Data-Centric Manifesto

DAS includes four days of in-depth training sessions, countless networking opportunities with industry experts, and the first official gathering of Data-Centric Manifesto signatories.

We have uncovered a root cause of the messy state of Information Architecture in large institutions today. It is the prevailing application-centric mindset that gives applications priority over data. The remedy is to flip this on its head. Data is the center of the universe; applications are ephemeral.

These are the key principles of the data centric manifesto:

  • Data is a key asset of any organization.
  • Data is self-describing and does not rely on an application for interpretation and meaning.
  • Data is expressed in open, non-proprietary formats.
  • Access to and security of the data is a responsibility of the data layer, and not managed by applications.
  • Applications are allowed to visit the data, perform their magic and express the results of their process back into the data layer for all to share.
