Our technology landscape is evolving rapidly, and new architecture patterns are constantly emerging to support increasing need for business agility and innovation. In this session, I will take you on a tour of our data past, data present and data future and discuss industry and business triggers driving changes in our architectural approaches. With a data architecture lens, I will provide a perspective on where we have been (data past), where are we today (data present) and where we might be going next (data futures) – looking at the challenges we face with data architecture and management. Covering a diverse set of data-related topics, spanning patterns and practices observed from the birth of data management to current and future considerations including data mesh and data fabric to data ethics.
This session will incorporate industry specific examples with an aim to also provide clarity on how business needs are influencing emerging data architecture patterns and the practical data challenges organisations are facing.
