We data architects have done a great job maturing the data management profession: we have tools with decades of usability, technical features and relational database support.  Our methods have been tested and tailored across many industries.  We have books, training materials, online communities and more.


And yet the advent of new methods and tools is putting us at risk for becoming irrelevant on modern data-driven projects.  What do we do when our teams use Hadoop or other NoSQL technologies? What if the development team is using Agile/XP/SCRUM methods?  Will our methods work? Do those teams even need a data architect?  Are data management skills no longer needed?


In this presentation Karen covers the basics of Big Data, NoSQL and modern development methods, then shows how modern data architects should respond to the ever-changing environment of IT development and acquisition methods.  She'll help you separate the myths from the misunderstandings and show you how to continue to add business and technical value to these projects.
