Our first annual Data-centric Architecture Forum in February of 2019 was a productive and inspiring experience. If you want to participate in an intimate get together for practitioners who are interested in helping shape the nascent Data-centric Revolution (check out and sign our data-centric manifesto), this event is for you.

Our second annual event will be in February of 2020 with a few dozen attendees and a handful of vendors offering solutions that look to be of interest to this community. Here's a quick summary of our 2019 event to give you an idea of what to expect.

When we say, "Data-centric Revolution", what do we mean?

To summarize, this revolution recognizes that the predominant approach to implementing enterprise applications (the “application-centric” approach) is badly broken.  Several practitioners came together over two years ago and founded the “Estes Park Group”, which has been meeting on a monthly basis (and growing in membership) since then to begin to put some flesh on the skeleton of an approach we’ve outlined.

We know of a handful of firms that have adopted something very close to what we have outlined.  We will be exploring what worked and didn’t work with them.  We are inviting vendors that have key parts of the puzzle.  Our collective opinion at the moment is that a fully functioning data-centric architecture, available for purchase, does not exist.  We will be outlining what companies will do in the short term to fill this void, and hopefully we can encourage some vendors to take up the task of delivering such an architecture.

The format will be highly interactive; primarily panel discussions with much input from the audience and short vendor demos.

From this simple beginning we believe some of the more profound changes ever to occur to Enterprise Architecture and Enterprise Application space will bloom. Become part of something big.

Come for the conference, stay for the winter sports.
