The IT paradigm is shifting from one centered on apps to one where data takes center stage. In a data-centric architecture, data is the principal asset and applications help to interact with data but they play the role of support tools rather than the primary focus for IT.
Dan DeMers, founder and CEO of Cinchy,said that“over the years, organizations have become entirely application-centric there’s an app for everything and a database for every app. A data-centric architecture redraws the boundaries so that when we think of the overall data architecture, we’re able to take a fresh look at how apps manage the data and reverse the equation. This is the best and fastest path to building a data-centric culture.”
