What is Data Fabric?
Data Fabric is an architecture and design approach created to modernize the way organizations manage their data. It is an integrated layer within your data infrastructure that allows data to be discovered and utilized by both the people accessing it and the applications connected to it. It delivers value by learning from the way that people interact with your organization’s data and creates an ecosystem that is intuitively adaptive to your organization’s data needs.

How intuitive can Data Fabric be?
A core element of Data Fabric is its ability to constantly analyze metadata and make recommendations on how your data infrastructure should evolve. By utilizing active metadata to perform continuous analysis of the interactions users and business systems have with data, the Fabric is able to predict and recommend, or even automate, modifications to data pipelines that deliver what organizations need, rather than what they think they want.
This works to resolve data challenges that remain unresolved by traditional data management solutions, for example:
Data Fabric’s adaptability means it can flow with the evolving data needs of an organization, where traditional approaches might struggle to keep up.
Data Fabric understands users’ needs by analyzing what they actually do with the data, rather than what they say they need.
Data Fabric works within organizations’ current IT and data infrastructures, meaning there’s no need to attempt to centralize data, but rather augment and complete it within a Data Fabric architecture.
