Our theme of this event is the "The Last Mile." As attendees of the last three forum know, there are challenges in implementing a Data-Centric solution. Sooner or later these need to be addressed. We've identified ten challenges that historically have been solved with application-specific code that have resulted in expanding technical debt and data silos or "systems of systems." The Data-Centric vision is to make applications thinner as more and more shared relationships and common business logic can be expressed in a core model and be realized by leveraging semantic standards and knowledge graph capabilities.
We're seeking practitioners looking to bring solutions, ideas, and a learning mindset that can move more organizations up the maturity curve.
Many of these challenges have already been solved in traditional ways however the ability to integrate as whole with flexibility to enable business agility has been a lacking element. The agenda is totally dedicated to upgrading our shared understanding of the state of the art on these ten challenges within a Data-Centric environment. We have a bias towards solutions that are based on graph databases, semantics, or model driven development, but it’s not limited to these technologies
Objectives of DCAF are three-fold:
- Mutually advance the state of the industry regarding getting Data-Centric Architectures designed and implemented
- Form strategic partnerships amongst the various thought leaders and solution providers
- Get implementors collectively up to speed on what is currently possible
So, what is Data-Centric anyway?
