For Enterprise Architecture Professionals

Forrester's Data Taxonomy Tool

August 8, 2014


Why Read This Report

When it comes to data technology, are you lost in translation? What’s the difference between data federation, virtualization, and data- or information-as-a-service? Are columnar databases also relational? Does one use the same or different tools for business activity monitoring (BAM) and for complex event processing (CEP)? These questions are just the tip of the iceberg of a plethora of terms and definitions in the rich and complex world of enterprise data and information. Data and information architects manage multiple challenges on a daily basis already, and the last thing they need to deal with are misunderstandings of the various data technology component definitions. This companion tool to the “Lost In Data Translation? Forrester’s Data Taxonomy To The Rescue” document will define the detailed Forrester data taxonomy — categories, components, definitions, and aliases — providing a common language for enterprise architecture (EA) professionals to communicate consistently within and between project teams, as well as among business stakeholders and business technology management professionals.
