Expert Analysis: How Do I Get Started with a Semantic Layer? (Using Entity Resolution for Multiple Source Fusion)

Enterprise Knowledge 14 May 2024
The volume of information organizations have available to them is far exceeding their ability to make sense of it all. A big part of the problem is the fact that enterprise data is scattered, disconnected and represented in inconsistent forms. In this article, we explore the role of Entity Resolution in the Semantic Layer as a means to bring enterprise data into context. Information in context, delivered via the Semantic Layer, allows organizations to make better decisions faster – across lines of business; whether the customer is facing decisions or optimizing operations. In this blog, Lulit Tesfaye and Jeff Jonas discuss typical problems that would necessitate Entity Resolution, how to unify enterprise data with a Semantic Layer, and the role of entity-resolved knowledge graphs, all while bringing in real case studies and applications.
