Delivering Unified Semantics into Every Data Application
Webinar Speaker: James Kobielus, Senior Research Director for Data Management
Date: Wednesday, January 17, 2024
Time: 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET
To make the most of your business data you’ll need to harmonize this critical asset around common enterprise-wide meanings. That demands a critical piece of modern data infrastructure known as a semantic layer.
An upstream semantic layer lets you unify your organization’s knowledge base around shared definitions, glossaries, and other facets of data’s meaning. Doing so ensures that downstream applications present a consistent view of how all data is to be interpreted and used for decision-making and other contexts.
Join us to hear James Kobielus, TDWI senior research director for data management, engage a panel of industry experts and thought leaders from Databricks and Cube.dev as they explore:
- What is a semantic layer and what is its function in a modern enterprise cloud data stack?
- What are the principal use cases of a semantic layer?
- What APIs and other interfaces do data engineers and developers need to build consistent semantics into downstream applications?
- How do you use a semantic layer to model raw data into meaningful business definitions?
- How can you use a semantic layer to ensure that downstream applications stay updated with the latest data conforming to standard definitions?
