And how to connect it to business value
Data architecture is the foundation of every organization’s data strategy, but it's not just something for CIOs and data architects either - everyone at data-powered organizations can benefit from understanding the ways data moves between teams and flows into data projects to yield insights.

Grant is a Customer-Facing Data Scientist and Analytics Architect with Dataiku. In this and his prior roles, Grant has spent time with 100+ companies understanding and architecting solutions for both business analytics and data science platforms. When not working with Dataiku clients, Grant is a Lecturer at Columbia University in the Applied Analytics program and enjoys volunteering at his son's school.
Harizo has a background in mathematics and computer science and holds a PhD in Computational and Applied Mathematics from the University of Lille. He works on the R&D team at Dataiku, focusing on technical ecosystem integrations, particularly the challenges of enterprise-grade deployments (security, availability, and scalability).
This guidebook is divided into two sections focusing on two major business concerns impacted by data architecture: scalability and security. In order to design (and then maintain) a data architecture that doesn’t hamper an organization, but rather enables it to grow and succeed, these are key considerations. This guidebook also contains:
When users want real-time data, architects think distributed systems. But depending on the use-case, operations occurring in “real-time” can mean vastly different things to different people, so the key as a non-data architect is to be clear. If dashboards need to be updated every minute as opposed to refreshing overnight for the next day,
this places divergent constraints on what the architecture needs to support. Nothing beyond physical sensors is actually able to function in real-time, but so long as communication about the time-sensitive needs of the business is clear, then architectural priorities can respond.
