Join noted industry analysts Joe Maguire and Peter O'Kelly as they explain how, even in the midst of these changing data management scenarios, data modeling is more relevant than ever before. They’ll also introduce a new kind of framework for understanding how the various "next-generation" developments fit relative to established database models. And after reviewing mission-critical roles for conceptual, logical, and physical data modeling techniques and tools, Joe and Peter will share some projections about what's likely to happen next with NoSQL and other recent market developments.
What you'll learn:
What NoSQL is, why it’s often misunderstood, and how it relates to traditional data management
What's the big deal with big data? Understand how it differs from, for example, data warehousing
How the cloud introduces new opportunities – and mandates -- for data modeling and data management
How the growth in XML information management is more complementary than competitive with traditional data management
How these new technologies can alter the fundamentals of data hygiene (e.g., data governance, information quality, data lifecycle management)
