A data fabric for a multi-cloud future

The cloud is transforming every business, and multi-cloud is the future. To be successful, enterprises will have to access, govern, secure, transform, and manage data across private and public clouds. This is what IBM is addressing using the data fabric, a significant effort that will likely span multiple years. A solid foundation to a data fabric starts with centralized metadata management, data governance, and data privacy, which, when augmented by automation, really helps in amplifying the benefits.
