Data Fabric: The Next Generation of Data Management
The mandate for enterprise IT to deliver business value has never been stronger. 76% of executives believe IT must be an active partner in developing business strategy. To succeed in this daunting task, agility is key. However, enterprises are hampered by data strategies that leave teams flat-footed when the market shifts or new questions arise.
Structured data management systems worked acceptably well when the enterprise data landscape was itself predominantly structured. But the world is different now. The enterprise data landscape is increasingly hybrid, varied, and changing. The emergence of IoT, rise in unstructured data volume, increasing relevance of external data sources, and trend towards hybrid multi-cloud environments are obstacles to satisfying each new data request.
The old data strategy centered around relational data systems is fundamentally broken. How can enterprises shift from a reactive to a responsive data strategy?
Enterprise data fabrics offer the new way forward. The data fabric weaves together data from internal silos and external sources and creates a network of information to power your business’ applications, AI, and analytics. Quite simply, they support the full breadth of today’s complex, connected enterprise.
