What is Data Fabric?

Data fabric is an architectural approach that solves the challenge of data silos, with flexible, resilient integration of data sources across platforms and business users, making data available everywhere it’s needed regardless of where the data lives.

Although not a static, single technology, conceptually a data fabric provides a consistent view into and a set of controls for managing disparate data and divergent technologies deployed across multiple data centers and edge computing locations, both on-prem and in the cloud. Data fabric is not a one-off fix to a specific data integration or management challenge. It is a permanent and scalable solution to manage all of your data in a cohesive environment as well as a unified approach to data governance, management and integration.
