Unifying Data and Analytics During Disruption: Architectural Considerations for Multiplatform Data Environments

Unprecedented times call for organizations to use more data for analytics and applications to quickly adapt, and the result is an increasingly hybrid IT architecture consisting of many tools, applications, data platforms, and data sets—some on premises and others deployed in the cloud. Although broadly distributed and complex, this hybrid, multiplatform data environment provides new levels of flexibility according to TDWI research.
How do organizations access and analyze data across this distributed architecture in a way that unifies the data and doesn’t create data silos or data chaos? One way is via data virtualization, which integrates data from disparate sources, locations, and formats without replicating it, creating a single “virtual” data layer. This capability becomes part of the data fabric of the organization that helps to enable analytics and applications.
Join this series of SAP-sponsored webinars that address unifying your data and analytics environment during ever-changing times. In this first webinar we will cover:
- Trends in data management
- Data virtualization and the unified data fabric
- Architectural considerations for a unified data fabric
