Data and Information Architectures
Data analysis can only occur within the context of a supporting data architecture. Although the technological underpinnings and exact construction of such architectures can be vary, there are design principals that can be defined and described across technologies. This half-day workshop introduces a number of different high level data and information architectures, including databases, data lakes, ontogies, NoSQL and graph databases. Within the context of these architectures, the module also discusses, more generally what it means to structure data, and why choosing the correct data structure is essential in enabling the intended use of your data.
