It's all about the data. The model is already there, in the real world as well as the data mart or in the business rules that define it. I know how best to use it, access it, change it, and make it reveal its secrets.
Architecture is the culmination of science, logic, and art. Data governance requires a perspective that encompasses data study from structure to syntax to context. That's how I work. That's where I live.
I have been a software designer and data architect in multiple business domains, including healthcare, finance, professional systems analysis, and commercial software development.
In short, I coalesce the vapors of human existence into a viable and meaningful comprehension (paraphrased from Mel Brooks).
My designs are simple, powerful, and elegant.
