Data-Centric Monthly | February 2021

We're excited to have you aboard for our monthly newsletter! The Data-Centric movement is gaining momentum globally as IT leaders begin to understand what you already know... Data-Centricity is the key to the future survival of our organizations.

In exciting news, work has started on the development of a new “Zero-Copy Integration” standard which is set to change the way we build new digital services by eliminating the need to replicate data. While this was initiated out of Canada, its implications are universal. This will significantly reduce the risk of data privacy breaches by having a single source of truth.

Today, I’m thrilled to be joining Dave McComb, one of the godfathers of Data-Centricity. Dave will share stories and lessons from his work helping some of the world’s largest organizations transform into Data-Centric organizations. If you can’t make it live be sure to watch the on-demand recording on!

Also this month:

  • Three helpful articles to better understand how you can make the shift.

  • Two must-attend events (including one about Earth data 🌎)

  • Two foundational learning videos from our library.

  • And more…

Enjoy this month’s read! — Dan, Co-Founder and CEO, Cinchy P.S. Feel free to connect with me on Linkedin!
