[Gartner: Enterprise Data Architecture: Why, What and How]
"All enterprises have a data architecture — it is the data landscape of the business. Data architecture, as a discipline, is aimed at finding opportunities to simplify, standardize and improve accessibility to data. Enterprises that focus resources on planning and executing improvements to their data architecture can realize infrastructure cost savings by removing redundancy and controlling fragmentation. Most importantly, optimization of the data architecture will increase the agility of the enterprise in responding to constantly changing business requirements."
Brian is a candidate for earning the "MCSA: SQL Server 2012/2014" and the "MCSE: Data Management and Analytics". He enjoys learning the "tools of the trade" to design and manage data for analysis and reporting. Particularly with Excel, SQL Server, SSRS, SSAS, SSIS, and front end presentation such as Microsoft Power BI.
