Abstract:  The recent focus on Big Data in the data management community brings with it a paradigm shift—from the more traditional top-down, “design then build” approach to data warehousing and business intelligence, to the more bottom up, “discover and analyze” approach to analytics on Big Data. Where do relational data bases, data modeling, and data warehousing fit in this new world of Big Data? Do they go away, or can they evolve to meet the emerging needs of this exciting new technology? Join industry expert Donna Burbank as she discusses the issues and opportunities that exist for data management professionals in the Big Data environment.
