Data Fabric: Smart Data Engineering, Operations and Orchestration
In this analyst report, David Wells describes the concept of the data fabric
, a combination of architecture and technology that is designed to streamline the complexities of managing many different kinds of data.
The complexities of modern data management expand rapidly as new technologies, new kinds of data, and new platforms are introduced. As data becomes increasingly distributed across in-house and cloud deployments, the work of moving, storing, protecting and accessing data becomes fragmented with different practices depending on data locations and technologies. Data fabric can serve to minimize disruption by creating a highly adaptable data management environment that can quickly be adjusted as technology evolves.
