The concept of a Data Fabric is not new, but it is the goal of today’s savvy organizations who want to understand how the right data is accessible to key parts of the organization that make informed decisions. A data fabric allows decision-makers to view this data more cohesively to better understand the customer lifecycle, making connections between data that did not exist before. By closing these gaps in understanding of customers, products and processes, data fabrics are accelerating digital transformation and automation initiatives across businesses.
