Digital firms understand how crucial data is to their success, as data flows from the OmniChannel edge to the data hub, spawning analytics insights that flow back to the edge. That’s why data management professionals must understand the critical role of Design in current and future analytics architectures, counter to the conventional wisdom that design doesn’t matter for supposedly “schema-less” environments.

Attend this session to learn:

  • How customer experience drives Digital transformation, inundating firms in data that is a source of deep insights and new revenue
  • How leading firms manage the design of agile data schemas in their new architecture stack for delivering OmniChannel, smart, cloud-friendly, and API-centric applications
  • How data management professionals are integrating Big Data, the API Economy, and cloud architectures to stay relevant in today’s world
