Industry expert Len Silverston will provide insights on how to manage and foster collaboration in complex, enterprise data environments

SAN FRANCISCO – August 20, 2015Embarcadero Technologies is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, August 26, 2015 to provide data professionals and business stakeholders with insights on how to manage and foster collaboration in complex, enterprise data environments. The webinar will be hosted by Len Silverston, an industry thought leader with extensive expertise in data modeling and data governance in the data management industry, where he has pioneered new approaches to effectively tackle enterprise data management.


The Key to Big Data Modeling: Collaboration

Some claim that in the age of Big Data, data modeling is less important or even not needed. However, with the increased complexity of the data landscape, it is actually more important to incorporate data modeling to understand the nature of the data and how they are interrelated. To do this effectively, our approaches to data modeling need to adapt to this complex environment. One of the key data modeling issues is how to foster collaboration between new groups, such as data scientists, and traditional data management groups. There are often different paradigms, and yet it is critical to have a common understanding of data and semantics between different parts of an organization. In this presentation, Len Silverston will discuss:

  • How Big Data has changed the enterprise landscape and affected data modeling
  • How to conduct data modeling in a more ‘agile’ way for Big Data environments
  • How to collaborate effectively within an organization, even with differing perspectives

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

This is a 1-hour live webinar (45-min presentation followed by 15-min Q&A). Participants will be able to submit questions during the webinar. Following the webinar, an on-demand replay as well as a PDF of the slide presentation will be available to registrants.
