Many organizations recognize the value and benefits Artificial Intelligence (AI) can bring if implemented correctly. This topic is outlined in the authors' previous book, Artificial Intelligence: Evolution and Revolution. A long-standing challenge that many organizations continue to face is preparing for AI and making sure that their data and assets are accessible, manageable, and governed and are of the right quality so that they can be consumed by new and existing AI applications in order to infuse AI across the enterprise to help drive smarter business outcomes.

Organizations need the flexibility to put their data and assets where it makes most business sense, whether that's on premises or in the private or public cloud.
This book explains the concepts and values that a data fabric approach can deliver to both technical and business communities.
This book helps the reader on their AI journey by covering:
