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 to 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.
