Do Data Lakes and Data Fabrics Make you a Data-Driven Organization? - Keynote
We are living in a data-driven society in which everyone expects to have instant access to all the data needed. For example, customers expect to be able to follow the status of their order, everyone can watch the position and status of incoming flights, and patients can look up their blood test results through the hospital portal.
This overall expectation of instant access to data is now also expected from organizations. Data must be available to employees and external parties when they need it. Current IT systems were not designed for that. Therefore, numerous organizations are designing and developing new data architectures, such as data lakes, data fabrics, and data meshes. These new architectures should give everyone inside and outside the organization frictionless access to data currently hidden in cryptic databases and behind complex applications.
But data lakes and data fabrics can’t be bought, they need to be developed in a tailor-made style. This session explains what the benefits are of using data virtualization, master data management, and metadata technology when developing such new data architectures.
