What is Data Fabric?
It is generally a custom-made design offering pipelines, reusable data services, and semantic tiers or APIs. The offering is made through a combination of data integration approaches in an orchestrated fashion. You can improve on data fabrics by adding dynamic schema recognition, or cost-based optimization approaches. If you have a trusted and agile data fabric, you can derive value from analytics investments.
