Data Modeling and Data Management in a SOA Environment

This one day interactive seminar will address the critical issues data and information management professionals encounter in a SOA environment.

What attendees will learn:

  • How and why data modeling is different in a SOA environment?
  • Does the level of granularity of the data have to be adjusted for SOA?
  • Are there issues with data that is too highly abstracted? 
  • What is a canonical model and why is one needed?
  • How important are standards?
  • Can data itself be considered a "service" under SOA?
  • What do you do about existing databases?
  • How does SOA alter data warehousing? 
  • How do you convert from an ER model to XML?
  • What role does process modeling play in SOA? What is an event-driven architecture and is it relevant to SOA?
  • What are services exactly and how granular should services be?
  • How does Master Data Management fit within SOA?
  • How can organizations benefit from integrating the data warehouse within the SOA environment?
  • Can SOA simplify delivery of business intelligence?
  • What governance is necessary with SOA?
