A data-centric outlook is a core concept in digital project execution architecture where data is viewed as the most important and perpetual asset used in support of applications to produce deliverables. Within a data-centric architecture, the data model precedes the implementation of a given application and remains valid long after the application is gone. In a data-centric approach, data must drive the development of projects, designs, business decisions, and culture. The emergence of cloud computing and storage enables organizations to remotely access and analyze large databases in order to make more objective, risk-mitigating, and profitable decisions.
