Slides: Enterprise Architecture in the Era of Big Data and Quantum Computing

Back in April, Big Data Palooza MeetUp group held an awesome event on an ever-popular topic: enterprise architecture. However, this presentation took a unique big data and quantum computing spin.

In this presentation, titled “Enterprise Architecture in the Era of Big Data and Quantum Computing,” Enterprise Architect Jim Luisi covered the characteristics that identify the presence of big data and examples of useful frameworks to manage and organize big data products, including use case families and architectural disciplines.

Invariably, as new big data use cases emerge, new products emerge to address them. At this point, there are so many use cases and so many products that frameworks to organize and manage them are necessary.
