Level:  Intermediate

This is a case study on current and future possibilities based on our experience establishing a data sharing environment which provides us with the capability to share data assets across the enterprise.

We will review the common data model and integration patterns that were designed and how they are utilized as part of our overall data architecture, and why we focused on master data sharing in lieu of master data management. We will also discuss how Big Data will affect our data architecture approach, especially as we drive towards advanced analytics.

Topics of discussion:

  • Master Data Sharing - the impetus for establishing such an environment
  • Common Model - our approach for data integration and data asset sharing
  • Reference Architecture - the roadmap and principles driving our environment implementation
  • Big Data - where does Big Data fit into our evolving data architecture

Please join us for this discussion which hopefully provides insight into our approach on sharing data assets across the enterprise and how that approach can evolve going forward.
