Organizations are rapidly adopting Hadoop as a more scalable and efficient persistence layer of all types of data. But organizations continue to struggle to efficiently ingest, cleanse, master, govern, and deliver trusted information out of Hadoop for analytical value. Data either becomes distributed in siloed teams or becomes entirely inaccessible due to security and compliance constraints.

With more organizations looking to use big data platforms for sensitive and regulated data sets, new big data fabrics are required that promote operational agility and end-user analyst autonomy, while ensuring security and governance. In this session, learn how leading customers have built a unified big data fabric on top of Hadoop, using technologies like Informatica to repeatably deliver trusted data assets to a large community of data consumers, for a multi-dimensional view of customers.

This session is sponsored by Informatica
