Catching up on the backlog of papers – I’ve added my 2010 EDW presentation on generating XML Schemas from models

Looking at the amount of material I prepared for this 2010 presentation, I do wonder how I possibly thought I could do it justice in just one hour, including two live product demonstrations 

When I first came across XML Schemas, I was struck by their simplicity and versatility. When I saw how some people use them, I realised that the days of unmanaged COBOL copybooks had returned to haunt me.

This was my attempt to exorcise the XML demon. For this relaunch on my blog I’ve added back the hidden slides, and added a few notes – it’s still essentially the 2010 presentation, so it’s likely that some of my comments on tool capabilities are out of date.

“Making It Real” – Establishing the Interdependence of Data Governance and Your Data Models #mdmdg

“Data governance is at the heart of all data management activities and is heavily reliant on effective data modelling. This is a two-way interdependency. Neither can work effectively without the other.”

In May 2018, Chris Bradley (@inforacer) and I will be running a full-day seminar on this topic at “Data Governance Conference Europe” in London. If you want to find out more, click on this link – https://irmuk.co.uk/events/data-governance-conference-europe – and we’ll see you there.

In the workshop, we describe real-world data governance processes, based upon years of experience with major clients, and the accompanying data modelling practices and additional information required to manage change effectively, including data lineage. Then it will be time for you to put those processes to the test, pushing proposed changes through the data governance pipeline, in which you are a key participant. Will our apparently perfect processes and data modelling practices hold up?

“Data governance is at the heart of all data management activities and is heavily reliant on effective data modelling. This is a two-way interdependency. Neither can work effectively without the other.”

In April 2018, Chris Bradley (@inforacer) and I will be running a half-day seminar on this topic at Enterprise Data World in San Diego. If you want to find out more, click on this link – https://edw2018.dataversity.net/sessionPop.cfm?confid=121&proposalid=9515 – and we’ll see you there.
