Data-Centric Strategies to Break the Cycle of Legacy Addiction

About this event

Join Brian Platz, CEO of Fluree and Dave McComb, President of Semantic Arts for a discussion on practical steps organizations can take to break the cycle of legacy addiction and move to a more data-centric architecture.

We'll describe the path to data-centricity through a continuum: Legacy Amplification, Legacy Avoidance, Legacy Erosion, and Legacy Replacement.

What is Data-Centric?

In a data-centric architecture, data is the central product, while "agents" such as applications, data science workflows, or machine learning systems interact with and revolve around this core of interconnected data. In this model, we strip back the many layers of middleware and instead push responsibilities related to interoperability, trust, security, and sharing down to the base data layer. Opposite of the “Application-Centric” stack, a data-centric architecture is one where data exists independently of a singular application and can empower a broad range of information stakeholders.

But, how do we move from legacy infrastructure to this promised land? In Data-Centric Strategies to Break the Cycle of Legacy Addiction, we'll discuss strategies and tactics for organizations to:

  • Assess their own organization's data-centric maturity
  • Build technological and cultural paths to data-centric architectures
  • Think Big and Start Small through the MMCE framework (Model, Map, Connect, and Expand)

This webinar serves as a sequel to our first joint webinar with Semantic Arts titled "Data-Centric Transformation."
