Barbara Petrocelli (Cambridge Semantics), Peter Ball (Consultant)
4:35pm5:15pm Wednesday, September 25, 2019
Location: 1E 06

A data fabric built with an integration layer based on the graph data model amplifies and accelerates the delivery of analytics-ready data to consumers across the business. Semantics applied in a data fabric simplifies complex enterprise data; enables power blending of related data across siloed source systems; and answers both unanticipated or planned questions with agility and scale.

Join industry consultant Peter Ball, of Liminal Innovation, and Barbara Petrocelli, VP Field Operations of Cambridge Semantics, to learn how enterprise data fabrics are reshaping the modern data management landscape.
