From cloud-native platforms to decision intelligence to hyperautomation, here’s what technology research firm Gartner is predicting to be trending in 2022.

Data Fabric

Data fabric is a design concept that acts as an integrated layer (fabric) of data and connecting processes, according to Gartner. It uses analytics over existing metadata assets to support the design, deployment and utilization of integrated and reusable data across all environments.

It can reduce data management efforts by up to 70 percent by using analytics to learn and locate where data is used and recommend how it should be changed.

According to Gartner, data fabric provides a flexible, strong integration of data sources across multiple platforms for different users, making data available everywhere and anywhere regardless of where it’s stored.

Data management agility has become vital for organizations, Gartner stated. Data and analytics experts must look beyond traditional data management practices and move toward modern solutions like AI-enabled data integration to reduce human errors and decrease cost.
