Fluree, Industry Data Leaders Publish White Paper Series Detailing Competitive Advantage of Data-Centric Organizations

  • The white papers - co-authored by Fluree president Eliud Polanco and chief data officer (CDO) industry experts Peter Serenita and Julia Bardmesser - describe the path to and benefits of data-driven architectures
  • The papers underscore the competitive advantage of companies with a collaborative approach to data management and a widely accessible golden record of data
  • Fluree’s recent product expansion and the capabilities of its technologies align with the path to establishing data-driven organizations and architectures


WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.--()--Fluree, a company headquartered in Winston-Salem, N.C., which has developed a graph ledger database and data pipeline toolset for trusted-, interoperable-, secure-data management and sharing, today announced the publication of four white papers addressing the advantages of data-centric organizations.

The white papers - penned by seasoned industry experts including Fluree president Eliud Polanco, Enterprise Data Management Council chairman Peter Serenita and data strategy executive Julia Bardmesser - address The Data-Driven Organization, The Technology Innovations Behind a Data-Driven World, The History of Data Architecture Patterns and Data Governance in Data-Driven Organizations. All four papers, published by CDO Magazine and available on the Fluree website, aim to provide greater insight and understanding into how data as an enterprise asset promotes a sustainable competitive advantage with all functions, procedures and processes operating under one golden record of data.

“Data has so much more value than operating as a byproduct. Modern businesses must consider a data-centric technology architecture to remain competitive,” said Polanco, Fluree president and co-author of the white papers. “It is our hope that these papers delve deeper into these topics so that more business leaders might grasp the benefits of proper data management and understand the steps necessary to deploy data-centric business strategies to benefit their own companies.”

The papers underscore how organizations can and should use data to drive behavior and products, allowing companies to outsmart their competitors by maximizing how they leverage proprietary data.

“To effectively operate under a data-centric model, organizations must consider specific business changes, understand what a data-centric technology architecture looks like and be prepared to evolve their governance in a data-driven model,” said Serenita, who authored one of the white papers and in December was announced as the inaugural member of Fluree’s advisory board.

“The practices detailed in the white papers promote the free sharing of data across organizations, a strategy that is far more efficient than the historical method of duplicating data for individual purposes,” added Bardmesser, who has led global data management efforts at Voya Financial, Citi and Deutsche Bank.

Since merging with ZettaLabs in September, Fluree has expanded its offerings with a secure graph ledger database product, known as Fluree Core, to provide enhanced digital trust and distributed data collaboration. Fluree Sense, another product enabling modern data architectures, helps organizations modernize legacy infrastructures that are muddled with siloed data and archaic governance systems. These products only move companies closer to the modern data architecture and organizational structures discussed in the new white papers.

With these products and today’s white papers, Fluree continues its mission of building data-centric infrastructure for its customers, enabling the power of digital trust for new applications in verifiable credentials, enterprise blockchain and decentralized-data management. Fluree also continues to assist enterprise organizations in data transformation journeys for upgrading legacy infrastructure into collaborative modern data platforms. The company seeks to help all its customers by providing data-centric architecture that simplifies governance, consolidates security and provides secure access to clean and linked data for a diverse range of data consumers.
