Modern business conceptIn a SaaS world – where business users can sign up for and use powerful platforms by simply signing up we have to radically rethink what data architecture means.

It certainly isn’t about your ERD – your elegant descripton of the data at rest

It is, however, about how that data is acessed, shared, and moves about the technology toplology enabling business agiltiy and experimentation.
