Cloud Data Architectures
Cloud data architectures contain the rules, models, and policies that define how data is collected, stored, used and managed in the cloud within a business or an organization. Cloud data architectures manage the flow of data and how that data is processed and distrubuted across stakeholders and other applications for reporting, analytics, and other uses.
Businesses and organizations collect more and more data every year, from new digital streams to IoT. In this environment, data platforms built on cloud data architectures are replacing more traditional data platforms, which are struggling to handle exploding data volumes and more demanding applications from end users such as machine learning and AI.
