Key to modernizing data management and integration for enterprises to support the design, deployment and utilization of integrated and reusable data across all environments
features and Benefits
Gartner defines data fabric as a design concept that serves as an integrated layer (fabric) of data and connecting processes. A data fabric utilizes continuous analytics over existing, discoverable and inferenced metadata assets to support the design, deployment and utilization of integrated and reusable data across all environments, including hybrid and multi-cloud platforms.
- Data fabric leverages both human and machine capabilities to access data in place or support its consolidation where appropriate.
- It continuously identifies and connects data from disparate applications to discover unique, business-relevant relationships between the available data points.
- The insight supports re-engineered decision-making, providing more value through rapid access and comprehension than traditional data management practices.
