Fluree’s Favorite: Webinar

Data-Centric Strategies to Break the Cycle of Legacy Addiction

In October we had an awesome conversation with Dave McComb, President of Semantic Arts, and Brian Platz, Fluree CEO, on “Data-Centric Strategies to Break the Cycle of Legacy Addiction.” The duo discussed practical steps organizations can take to break the cycle of legacy addiction and move to a more data-centric architecture, describing the path to data-centricity through a continuum: Legacy Amplification, Legacy Avoidance, Legacy Erosion, and Legacy Replacement.

This webinar, as a sequel to our first joint webinar with Semantic Arts, explores strategies and tactics that will help organizations to asses their own data centric maturity, build technological and cultural paths to data-centric architectures, and dive in to the MMCE framework (Model, Map, Connect, Expand).
