Big Data Meets Data Fabric and Multi-cloud

As cloud computing progresses forward, an ages-old problem for IT is resurfacing—how to integrate and secure data stores that are disbursed geographically and across a growing diversity of applications. Data silos, which have always limited an organizations ability to extract value from all of its data, become even more isolated.

Consider the mainframe, with its stores of critical data going back decades, as the original data silo. Mainframe users still want to leverage this data for other applications such as AI but must overcome accessibility and formatting barriers in order to do so. It’s a task made easier by software vendors like Syncsort who’s Ironstream moves data from the ‘frame in a way that is easily digestible by Splunk applications for example.
