The End of Data Modeling?

When it comes to managing data for modern, agile environments, is data modeling a roadblock? Or is it, in fact, one of the keys to achieving agility? If traditional data modeling will no longer support what businesses need today, what are the alternatives?

In this edition of Fast Forward, Desmarets talks with hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon about the challenges that surround data modeling in the age of NOSQL databases and agile development. He outlines how Domain-Driven Design can help shape the future both for development teams and for data modelers themselves — who may have more to look forward to than becoming extinct.
