What you'll learn

  • Explore Anzo Smart Data Lake 4.0, the only end-to-end platform for semantic layers based on open standards


Only with a rich and interactive semantic layer can the data and analytics stack deliver true on-demand access to data, answers, and insights, weaving data together from across the enterprise into an information fabric. Ben Szekely shares the capabilities of Cambridge Semantics’s newly launched Anzo Smart Data Lake 4.0, the only end-to-end platform for semantic layers based on open standards. By developing Anzo Smart Data Lake on knowledge graphs end-to-end, Cambridge Semantics has built the foundation for a truly disruptive semantic layer. Ben concludes with a discussion of the strategic vision for information fabrics built on Anzo Smart Data Lake.

Topics include:

  • Automated ETL and collaborative mapping with efficient Spark generation
  • Text analytics linking unstructured and structured data in knowledge graphs
  • Data layers to dynamically prepare, clean, link, and transform data in the knowledge graph using scalable in-memory computing (think Photoshop for data)
  • High-res analytics, a unique exploratory analytic and data access experience powered by graph models and scalable in-memory computing

This session is sponsored by Cambridge Semantics.
