Integrating data silos using traditional databases and tools is a painfully slow and expensive process. What's worse—relational integration literally keeps the value of the data hidden.

An operational data hub (ODH) built on a multi-model database can integrate data from multiple sources, in multiple formats, far faster. Because of its ability to handle real time data plus analytic data, an ODH becomes an essential pattern to transform data into valuable assets.

In this webcast MarkLogic CTO Ken Krupa will discuss how an operational data hub functions and leverages multiple models. You will learn:

  • How an ODH allows you to integrate dozens or even hundreds of data silos
  • How Operational "run your business" and Analytic "see your business" functions can be consolidated
  • How a multi-model database speeds up data preparation from multiple sources
  • What role the ODH plays in your infrastructure.
  • How an ODH supports data governance
