1:30pm – 2:30pm: Transformative Data and Analytics Trends Need a Solid Data Foundation

Saptarshi Sengupta, Sr. Director of Brand and Corporate Marketing, Denodo

 

It is impossible to think about modern enterprise architecture without the trends such as data fabric, data products and Generative AI. While many companies are in the early phases of embracing these technologies and architectures within their organizations, often they do not result in desired business outcomes, if they are not based on a solid data foundation.

In this session learn a bit about these trends and why the importance of a solid data foundation is paramount.

One way to measure the success of enterprise architecture is by creating IT roadmaps that support business objectives. The more objectives the IT roadmap supports, the better we can conclude the success of EA within the business, and the higher quality of the end result can be.
