Data modeling is all about precisely capturing business requirements, leading to more successful operational and analytical applications. Data Modeling Zone (DMZ) is the annual conference in the US and in Europe where you can sharpen your data modeling skills, share experiences with other data professionals, and help shape our data modeling industry. DMZ US (Oct 16-18 in Hartford, Connecticut) contains over 50 sessions crossing five tracks: Foundational Data Modeling, Requirements and Communication, Big Data and Architecture, Hands-On and Case Studies, and Advanced Data Modeling.

Data modeling is all about understanding the data within our organizations and then representing this data in a precise visual (the “data model”) which aids communication – saving time during development, saving money on support, and improving data quality. The best place to equip your team with data modeling skills is Data Modeling Zone (DMZ), an annual conference in the US, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Have questions?
