Data & Security sessions

Data is an immensely valuable business currency. Forward-thinking organizations depend on their data for all manner of business practices. The massive proliferation of data acquisition, and its widespread use, are making modern architectures increasingly complex. As a software architecture practitioner, it’s critical that you have an end-to-end plan for your data access, use, and security. Similarly, the security of your entire enterprise is essential to the health of your overall business. If your goal is to help your organization improve in data and security, Software Architecture Conference offers the following relevant sessions.
