IBM Cloud Pak for Data makes this concept of a data fabric possible. IBM Cloud Pak for Data is an insight platform that simplifies and automates data collection, organization, and analysis of data and accelerates the infusion of AI throughout your business. With its capabilities to connect data everywhere; run workloads anywhere; and build, deploy and manage AI at scale in hybrid cloud environments, IBM Cloud Pak for Data is the enabler for a business digital transformation.
Data only delivers business value when it is contextualized and becomes accessible by any user or application in the organization. When implemented correctly, a data fabric helps ensure those values are available throughout the organization in the most efficient and automated way possible. As such, the fabric has three key benefits:
1. Enable self-service data consumption and collaboration.
2. Automate governance, protection, and security; enabled by active metadata.
3. Automate data engineering tasks and augment data integration across hybrid cloud resources.
The Databricks Lakehouse Platform combines the best elements of data lakes and data warehouses to deliver the reliability, strong governance and performance of data warehouses with the openness, flexibility and machine learning support of data lakes.
This unified approach simplifies your modern data stack by eliminating the data silos that traditionally separate and complicate data engineering, analytics, BI, data science and machine learning. It’s built on open source and open standards to maximize flexibility. And, its common approach to data management, security and governance helps you operate more efficiently and innovate faster.
AWS Redshift is a popular data warehousing solution that can handle data on an exabytes scale. Made possible by its Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) technology, Redshift is able to execute operations on a humongous volume of data at lightning speed — while typically costing only a fraction of what competitors like Oracle and Teradata charge for comparable products. Redshift shines in its ability to handle huge volumes of data — capable of processing structured and unstructured data in the range of exabytes. Together with Amazon Lambda, Glue Step Functions empower AWS Redshift to be a very effective data warehousing and analytics platform.
