Data is an expensive and expansive asset. Information hunger has forced retention capacity from megabytes to terabytes of data. Millions of dollars are spent accumulating data, and millions more are paid to the professional staff that nurture, secure, and extract information out of these billions of bytes of data.

Key Features Explains the fundamental concepts of enterprise architecture through definitions and real-world scenarios Teaches data managers and planners how to build a data architecture roadmap, structure the right team, and build a set of solutions for the various challenges they face Offers concise case studies that highlight how fundamental principles are put into practice.
