Industry Summit on Data Product Oriented Architectures

Date 5 - 6 Sep 2024
Location JADS

The failings of traditional centralized data management architectures to facilitate scalable data exchange within organizations have recently led to significant interest in decentralized approaches such as data meshes, data fabrics, and enterprise data markets. Although these approaches vary slightly in their design and emphasis, they all revolve around decentralising ownership and responsibility of data through creating and managing data products. We call these new approaches data Product-Oriented Architectures (POA).

On September 5th  and 6th, 2024, JADS will host the first-ever Industry Summit on Data Product Oriented Architectures (POA). The summit aims to bring together scientists researching the state-of-the-art in POA with industry practitioners in order to:

  • Make academic knowledge more readily available to industry practitioners.
  • Challenge academia to address the real-world problems organizations are facing with their POA transitions.
  • Foster collaboration between industry and academia.
  • Facilitate knowledge sharing between practitioners from non-competing organizations that face similar challenges when implementing a decentralized data (POA) architecture.
