SSI Orbit Podcast
The Inevitable Shift towards Data-Centric Architectures with Brian Platz
By Mathieu Glaude
June 10, 2021

Listen to this Episode about why organizations should quickly look to move away from application-centric designs.

Mathieu chats with Brian, Co-CEO of Fluree, an open-source platform for data ecosystems. The conversation covers data-centric architecture designs, and why organizations should look to move away from application-centric designs.
If you don’t consider doing so, macro trends around data privacy laws are driving us towards data centric models anyways. May as well get ahead of the curve and gain competitive advantages from data-centricity today!
