Simon Worthington from Register Dynamics will explain how to find the architecture, untangle it and make it useful for everyone – including why doing it saves you time and money and lets new innovation happen

ODI Fridays are free lunchtime lectures for everyone. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

Lots of organisations are on a data transformation journey. They’ve written their data strategy and they recognise that interoperability is key – now they want different teams to talk to each other easily to achieve new and innovative things. Most organisations first try to start their data architecture from the middle – but this comes with its own problems.

Simon Worthington, Founder of Register Dynamics will explain in this talk how most organisation’s data architecture already exists. People and teams in their organisations already have data models and are interoperating with others as part of their usual business. But how do organisations transform from ad-hoc, local-only thinking to a broad data architecture that is interoperable?

Simon will explain how to find the architecture, untangle it and make it useful for everyone – including why doing it saves you time and money and lets new innovation happen. He’ll also introduce his tool Registers.app that helps make data interoperable, always up-to-date and easy to consume.
