Are you serious about designing an architecture that supports the creation of robust, flexible data pipelines? Do you want to hear experts discuss various approaches to data ingestion, data integration, and the tradeoffs among them? In this live discussion, Equalum’s CEO Nir Livneh and Wayne Eckerson (President - Eckerson Group) will walk you through a variety of design choices that data architects need to consider when creating a modern data management environment. Our open-ended discussion format will allow for ample opportunity to ask and resolve all of your data design questions.



We discussed when to choose:

  • Throughput versus latency
  • Batch versus streaming
  • Replication versus transformation
  • Graphical versus hand coding
  • Full refresh versus change data capture

We will also explored the design tradeoffs involved in supporting:

  • Data warehouses versus data lakes
  • On premises versus cloud systems
  • Transactional systems versus event-driven systems
  • Structured versus complex data
