Speakers: Pablo Álvarez, Principal Technical Account Manager, Denodo
Enterprise semantic modeling is not a new concept. The idea of defining a semantic layer that business users can use and understand has been supported by enterprise reporting tools for a long time. However, those solutions were tied to the reporting tool of choice.
Modern data virtualization platforms like Denodo offer the capabilities to move the semantic layer outside a specific application. This means that the same semantic data model can be shared by a variety of reporting tools, published as data services and queried through a web-based catalog. The virtual layer becomes the true enterprise data fabric; all data is accessible through a unified single layer, security is always in place, and multiple access methods are available to adapt to the needs of the consumer.
