I am a Software/Data Architect
, a steward of data creating blueprints for data management systems. I help organizations to realize the value of their data assets. After assessing data sources available, both internal and external I design a plan to integrate, centralize, protect and maintain data needed by my client’s organization or data systems. Ensuring the company's customers, employees, and partners can access data timely and easily.
"It is all about the data"
After being part of the IT industry for 25+ years I am convinced it is all about the data.
Data is all around us and will always exist. Data is the building blocks of all information and information is used to drive our decisions. Our perceptions of the world are captured in the arrangement of the data. Hence the way we see the world is driven by the analysis of the data. We must analyze raw data, see patterns and process it into meaningful information.
Data is always correct, but information derived from data can be incorrect. Data is ever changing and keeps coming, usually faster than it can be captured and in great volumes from various sources and types. You must gather the data that is pertinent to your enterprise; store it, and discover the hidden patterns within.
