The virtually unlimited storage and computing capacity provided by cloud service providers has inspired modernization of enterprise data management, reporting, and analytics systems and migration to the cloud. Although many existing data warehouses have relied on a conventional data integration process (source data extraction, staging, standardization, and cleansing, followed by scheduled bulk data loads into the target data warehouse), the cloud revolution has enabled the introduction of more data, more source locations, and greater data management complexity.
Decades-old techniques for data integration are rapidly becoming obsolete as organizations adopt hybrid architectures to support modern real-time integrated and advanced analytics. Whether you need to synchronize data across on-premises/cloud boundaries, integrate data from SaaS/PaaS providers, ensure a baseline level of trust in data quality and usability, or ingest and process streaming data in real time, the traditional extract, transform, and load (ETL) approach is insufficient to tame the growing data chaos. In turn, these challenges impede your ability to democratize that data and empower your data analysts and data scientists to create value out of the corporate information asset.
In this webinar, we discuss how traditional data integration may be impacting numerous aspects of your business and explore ideas for using an enterprise data fabric to collect, govern, transform, and share the data across the extended hybrid enterprise environment. There will be a presented Lenovo use case discussing how they achieved fast data analysis in an AWS environment.
Attendees will learn about:
- Assessing the scope of enterprise data integration
- Understanding data access use cases and determining integration and delivery requirements
- Characteristics of an enterprise data fabric
- Integrating data governance and data quality into the fabric
- Taking advantage of automated data intelligence, inventory, and cataloging for data consumer enablement
