    Analytic Architecture Modernization through the eyes of a Data Architect

    The data and analytics landscape continues to evolve at an astonishing pace. The number of technology alternatives is staggering. The marketplace offers the promise of next generation analytic architectures to increase analytic agility, optimize TCO and drive greater business value. Success requires your role to evolve from conventional 'data architect' to 'data ecosystem architect'. This session provides a structure to help you make the transition. We will explore practical steps for modernizing your analytic architecture by leveraging emerging technologies and employing data architecture patterns for acquisition, integration and access. Best practices will be discussed for architecting the next generation analytic ecosystem by integrating heterogeneous data components, such as relational databases, cloud and federation technologies. You will leave the session armed with a practical approach for modernizing the analytic architecture in your own organization.
