Dawn Michels - Making the DMBOK Your Own

This case study explains how we took the well-known Data Management Body of Knowledge Wheel and turned it into the framework for our Enterprise Information Management team. After one year of using it we stepped back and did a maturity assessment and made adjustments to the details of the DMBOK wheel, "making it our own".

Luminita Vollmer - Follow the Logical Brick Road to the Intelligent Enterprise! 

Times and technologies are a changing, and times of traditional data warehouse development initiatives are long gone. Agile, Sandbox, Big data, Virtual integration, Advanced Analytics - only a few of the technologies currently changing the landscape of the business to meet new real time demands, large data sets, variety of sources and structures, and totally new RDBMS systems. This session provides a framework and a roadmap to the new logical data warehouse (LDW), new capabilities for Business Intelligence domains and a set of techniques for architecturally significant considerations when changes are needed in your organization.
