A Brief History of Data Architecture: Shifting Paradigms
Keith D. Foote, DATAVERSITY
Data Architecture is a set of rules, policies, and models that determine what kind of data gets collected, and how it gets used, processed, and stored within a database system. Data integration, for example, is dependent on Data Architecture for instructions on the integration process. Without the shift from a programming paradigm to a Data Architecture paradigm, modern computers would be much clumsier and much slower.
