Data Modeling Is Dead… Long Live Schema Design!

Pascal Desmarets, Hackolade

When it comes to managing data for modern, agile environments, is data modeling a roadblock? Or is it, in fact, one of the keys to achieving agility? If traditional data modeling will no longer support what businesses need today, what are the alternatives?

A distorted perception nowadays is that data modeling has become a bottleneck and doesn’t fit in an agile development approach.  You may pretend that it is not happening.  Or blame complexity, speed of change, culture, or developers’ mentality.  Or argue that data modeling is actually agile.

The reality is that Data Modeling needs to be re-invented in order to remain relevant.  In this session, we will look at some key enablers of agile data modeling, including domain-driven design and NoSQL technology.

Pascal Desmarets is the Founder and CEO of Hackolade. He leads the company and all efforts involving business strategy, product innovation, and customer relations, as it focuses on producing user-friendly, powerful visual tools to smooth the onboarding of NoSQL technology in corporate IT landscapes. Hackolade’s software combines the comfort and simplicity of graphic data modeling, with the power of NoSQL document databases, resulting in reduced development time, increased application quality, and lower execution risks.
