WHO: Denodo, the leader in data virtualization software, today announced that Illumina, one of the most prominent global biotech companies, will share how they built a semantic layer across their entire data landscape using data virtualization on August 21, 2019. Mike Sofen, Senior Staff Data Architect at Illumina, will present “Data Virtualization in Support of Data Architectures and Analytics.”

WHAT: Illumina deployed Denodo to drive the holy grails of data unification and consolidation. They created a universal semantic layer on top of their entire enterprise data landscape to be able to seamlessly run their cross-platform data analytics, machine learning and AI. On top of that, Illumina is an FDA and SOX regulated company, requiring a lot of extra consideration around solving security, permissions and deployments. Attend this session to learn how Illumina runs analytics and data architecture with the help of data virtualization while complying to stringent regulatory constraints.
