Enterprise Data Architect at VSP Global

Gaining an enterprise view of the data across different independent lines of businesses is difficult when the operations, systems, and data are inherently siloed. VSP Global is a conglomerate operating different businesses across eyewear insurance, manufacturing, and retail. They are integrating the silos using a semantic data layer.

In this presentation, the Enterprise Data Architect at VSP Global, Tim Fredricks will present:

  • The challenges associated with data siloed across different LOBs
  • How to build a semantic data layer using data virtualization
  • Centralizing business rules in the data virtualization layer

This session also includes a panel discussion with:

  • Rick Hart, Director of Global Technology Solutions at BioStorage Technologies 
  • Jeff Veis, VP Big Data Platform Marketing at HPE 
  • Mike Litzkow, Sales Director at Denodo (as moderator)
