Webinar Speaker: James Kobielus, Senior Research Director, Data Management

Date: Tuesday, June 14, 2022

Time: 12:00 p.m. PT, 3:00 p.m. ET

Data management platforms are becoming increasingly distributed. Multicloud, edge, and other distributed cloud architectures are becoming more prominent in enterprise deployments, and data management architectures will need to keep pace to support evolving requirements.

In this panel, TDWI senior research director James Kobielus will lead data industry experts in a discussion of the challenges associated with deploying, governing, and managing data in distributed cloud fabrics.

They will discuss such issues as:

  • What use cases are driving the trend toward distributed data architectures?
  • Are containerized DBMSs mature enough for primetime deployment?
  • What security issues will distributed data fabrics exacerbate?
  • Are data meshes truly governable?
