About the Webinar
How do you accelerate data warehousing to meet the demands of the data-driven economy? Semantic technology provides an agile platform to bring data together, focus on data that matters and ultimately derive a target data model that can be easily extended. This webinar will present a semantically-based data federation case study and highlight the semantic components that facilitate agile data federation in the enterprise.
