What is a Data Architect?
Ever since 2002my title has been data architect. It's actually funny how this came about...my company had a rule that all "DBAs" had to reside under a particular department head, but my future manager, who was persuingme for awhile to join his team, worked in a different department. To join the team I needed a different title ...hence my becoming a "data architect". In an instant I was promoted...samejob, same duties, different title. At the timeI didn't give much thought to the distinction in titles. Andto this day I couldn't care less what my title is.
