In recent years, the wave of digital transformation has unleashed innovation and productivity across all industries around the globe. Every organization is grappling with the challenge of creating business value from the massive explosion of new data arriving in real time from multiple sources.
From the COVID-19 pandemic to the current economic headwinds, we’ve all seen just how quickly the business landscape can change. If this keeps you up at night, rest assured you are not alone. The solution is a modern approach to connecting, creating, interpreting, and consuming data that allows you to integrate facts with everything that is known about them to put the information in context for different business users and use cases.
We refer to this as data agility: the ability to make simple, powerful changes to how information is interpreted and acted upon.
Data agility is what happens when you can connect active data, active metadata, and active meaning. To achieve data agility, you need a semantic data platform. It works like this: Data, together with its metadata, is collected and introduced into a semantic data platform that works with whatever data you collect. Once the semantic data platform ingests the data, it can be classified, enriched, stored tightly coupled with its metadata, and put into context. The metadata is effectively the connective tissue between the data and its meaning.
By deploying a semantic data platform, you can reduce time to value and deliver business outcomes that can transform your organization.

Sharing data can be relatively easy. Sharing our specialized knowledge about data is harder – and current approaches don’t scale.
Data agility is the ability to make simple, powerful, and immediate changes to any aspect of how information is interpreted and acted on.
In the digital era, data is cheap, interpretations are expensive. An agile semantic data platform combines facts and what they mean to create reusable organizational knowledge.
