Top data fabric solutions for your business

"Data fabric is the first real evolution of data since the relational database appeared in the 1970s," says Dan DeMers, CEO of Cinchy.

For any data-centric organisation, data fabric is an essential element and is quite relevant to enterprise data management and enterprise data integration. According to Gartner, by 2024, about 25% of every data management vendor will be providing data fabric solutions. IBM has also stated that by 2023, organisations using data fabrics will be dynamically connecting, optimising and automating data management processes to reduce time and integrate data delivery by 30%. 

Data fabric is an end-to-end data integration and management solution consisting of architecture, data management and integration software, and shared data that helps organisations manage their data. A data fabric provides a unified, consistent user experience and access to data for any member of an organisation worldwide and in real-time.
