During the seminar, “Data Modeling with Apache Cassandra,” Patrick will discuss the process of data modeling and why it is essential to a successful Cassandra deployment.


Data Modeling with Apache Cassandra
Any data science initiative depends on data to work. That data has to be modeled and managed well in order to get value out of it. However, the approach we take around data modeling can be influenced by the ways that we store data over time. Understanding this in advance can make it easier to get to answers from our data, and also avoid problems caused by bad decisions or overlooking data modeling at the start. In this session, attendees will learn about applying data modeling based on taking concepts through to logical workflows and understand how to implement a data model on Apache Cassandra.
