I am an experienced database professional with more than 30 years on the IT vendor side and as an independent consultant. I have worked with databases and data modeling since the late 70s. Since 1995 primarily on data warehouse projects, but today I work mostly with graph database technology. I have a strong urge to visualize everything as graphs - also datamodels.
What drives me most is turning data into information and knowledge. My approach to information-driven analysis and design can be called "New Nordic" in the sense that I aim to exploit traditional Nordic ambitions such as superior quality, functionality, reliability and innovation; looking for new ways of communicating the structure and meaning of the business context.
A consultant by heart: I provide consulting, reviews and recommendations to data-driven projects:
> Business information analysis and design, incl. metadata and business vocabularies
> Data architecture
> Data modeling, not least graph models
> Database technologies (today mostly Neo4j)
But I am also an active reader, speaker and author:
2016: "Graph Data Modeling for NoSQL and SQL - Visualize Structure and Meaning" on Technics Publications.
2017: "Visual Design of GraphQL Data" on leanpub.com. (On hold, will reappear soon on Apress).
2012: "Design Thinking Business Analysis - Business Concept Mapping Applied" on Springer.
I blog on Dataversity (http://www.dataversity.net/author/thomas-frisendal/) and a few other places.
I live in Copenhagen, close to the airport, and I can see Malmö on the other side of the Öresund!
Always interested in feedback and forward-looking creativity!
