The Data Architecture Dialogues - Chapter 2 of The Semantic Dialogues

January 23, 2009 0 Comments


Chapter 2 of The Semantic Dialogues, The Data Architecture Dialogues, is available now. "With too many different data stores, too much bad data, too many incompatible definitions of the data (and forget about managing change) it doesn’t seem like a bad idea to create an Enterprise Data Platform. But some members of the team push back. Cliff Chen, database designer, stands his ground as the debate continues."

Read Chapter 2, The Data Architecture Dialogues, today. And if you’re enjoying The Semantic Dialogues, be sure to share it with a colleague.

The Semantic Dialogues tells the story of how National Networks, a fictional telecommunications service provider, pursued and achieved data interoperability within their SOA infrastructure. The story begins with an urgent request from Operations for a fix to a problem that's keeping them from billing for new services. Assured that extensions can be made to the common data model (the SID) for the COTS billing system that's causing the headache, the problem is resolved in short order. The story then goes back a year to a time when the lack of a data interoperability layer made similar problems seem insurmountable and a tiger team is formed to put in place an OSS/BSS architecture that will change the way the CSP does business.
