What is DMZ?
Applications deliver value only when the underlying applications meets user needs. Yet organizations spend millions of dollars and thousands of hours every year developing solutions that fail to deliver. There is so much waste due to poorly capturing and articulating business requirements. Data models prevent this waste by capturing business terminology and needs in a precise form and at varying levels of detail, ensuring fluid communication across business and IT. Data modeling is therefore an essential skill for anyone involved in building an application: from data scientists and business analysts to software developers and database administrators. Data modeling is all about understanding the data used within our operational and analytics processes, documenting this knowledge in a precise form called the “data model”, and then validating this knowledge through communication with both business and IT stakeholders.
Data Modeling Zone (DMZ) is the only conference completely dedicated to data modeling. After over 20 successful DMZ conferences worldwide, and a four year hiatus, DMZ returns! DMZ US 2024, in Phoenix, Arizona, February 27-March 1, 2024, contains four tracks:
- Skill (fundamental or advanced modeling techniques)
- Technology (AI, mesh, cloud, lakehouse, etc.)
- Case study
- Semantic modeling (graphs, ontologies, reasoning, etc.)
Our theme this year is rising from the ashes, the phoenix returns, DMZ is back, and in Phoenix!
