This document begins by defining what a data fabric is, along with its benefits. The next section walks the reader through the set of processes or capabilities needed to give the user a sane and rational way to access the environment, understand and create needed analytical assets, and the ability to quickly make decisions with confidence. Within each process, the technological functionality needed to create and maintain a fully functioning data fabric environment is discussed.
The last section of the paper discusses things to think about when implementing a data fabric for all analytical needs. Using the proper set of technology can mitigate, if not eliminate, many of these challenges.
