Over the past 10 years, data has evolved from being part of a back-room operation that reported on the health of the business to become a core enabler for running the business. Gone are the days of the traditional ETL lifecycle where data must be manually profiled, integration rules determined by business analysts and data architects, unified data models manually created, and data pipelines hand-written by data engineers. The world of business has changed. Applications now run on analytics, and emerging "data first" companies are becoming the blueprint for successful businesses. These organizations have data analytics in their DNA and leverage data integration platforms powered by advanced engineering.
In this session, Joe Caserta, coauthor of best-seller The Data Warehouse ETL Toolkit and thought leader in data integration, shares his experience and vision of contemporary and future data integration techniques required to leverage data at the speed of business. Joe reveals how new modern techniques can replace legacy approaches, provides a comprehensive analysis of modern products in the data integration space, and predicts future features and capabilities. The session includes an illustration of a forward-looking reference architecture required to produce a future-state modern enterprise data integration platform.
