Cambridge Semantics Executive to Present at Gartner Data & Analytics Summit 2018

Smart Data Company® to lead discussion on the benefits of enterprise-grade graph databases and introduce DataLayers™ and GraphMarts™ from Anzo Smart Data Lake® 4.0

BOSTON & GRAPEVINE, Texas--()--Cambridge Semantics, the leading provider of a universal semantic layer for big data management and connected data analytics solutions, today announced its participation at the Gartner Data & Analytics Summit 2018, March 5-8 in Grapevine, Texas.

Ben Szekely, vice president of solutions, will speak about the rise of graph-based discovery and analytics during a session entitled “The Year of the Graph.” This presentation is set for Monday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m. CT at Theater 1 inside of the Exhibit Showcase, Longhorn D.

Additionally, Cambridge Semantics will be demonstrating its award-winning Anzo Smart Data Lake® (ASDL) 4.0, which incorporates several new advancements including “DataLayers” and “GraphMarts” which are designed to enable IT and business users to access and work with far richer data, with more precision, leading to transformative organizational insights. These innovations deliver a generational shift over current data lake, data management and data analytics offerings.

ASDL 4.0 also offers an end-to-end, enterprise-scale open platform that creates a single semantic layer of an organization’s structured and unstructured data. The resulting fully governed data fabric is represented as a Knowledge Graph, fully capable of managing all enterprise data, while also enabling users to conduct code-free, rich interactive discovery and analytics at speeds more than 100x faster than competing approaches.

“The Gartner Data & Analytics Summit serves as the perfect venue to meet with industry peers sharing the latest knowledge and insights,” said Alok Prasad, president of Cambridge Semantics. “We also look forward to discussing the ground-breaking capabilities of ASDL 4.0, and how it can help enterprises secure unprecedented business value from their data.”
