Introduction to modern data architectures
The world is constantly changing thanks to data, and every day the amount of data to be processed is even bigger. Thus, this course gives you an overview of modern data architectures, guiding you through the fundamental components of data solutions.
Components of modern data architectures
This is an introductory course to modern data solutions. During the first half of this course you'll learn what modern data architectures are, will review some popular solutions like Data Mesh and Data Fabric, and will explore the different elements of data architectures such as storage, data ingestion methods, processing options, and serving techniques.
Transversal Components of modern data architectures
In the second half, the course shows the transversal components that ensure the cohesion and enable the management of data architectures; explaining concepts like data governance, orchestration, observability, and even cost optimization within cloud providers. With all these elements, you'll be able to design data solutions that highly align with your organization's needs.
Designing and evaluating modern data architectures
The final part of the course integrates the knowledge you've gained, using a business case to design a data solution that satisfies the requirements of the business.
