A Wish List for Data Modeling Technology

I was recently a panelist for a Dataversity webinar/discussion focused on the future of data modeling tools, functionality, and practice. Given the holiday season, the panelists discussed their wish list for modeling tools – from currently practical (but maybe not economically viable) to futuristic (e.g., using a 3D printer to print models for model reviews, using Google Glass to move objects around on the model).

With some guidance, you can craft a data platform that is right for your organization’s needs and gets the most return from your data capital.

More important than the technology – as important and interesting as that is – is having solid processes and modeling standards in place to ensure better model quality, reuse, and understandability.
