FAIRFAX, Va., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient Federal Solutions, Inc. (Salient), a leading provider of information technology, training, engineering, and intelligence analytics services to agencies in the intelligence, defense, homeland security, cyber security, and federal civilian markets, announces that Cindy Walker will be speaking at the Enterprise Data World 2014 Conference and Expo (EDW) in Austin, Texas. The topic is "Combining Traditional Enterprise Data Management Best Practices with Semantic Approaches and Technologies for Business Agility." The presentation will be on Wednesday, April 30, 8:30 AM - 9:15 AM.
Ms. Walker, Director of Salient's Data Analytics Center of Excellence, is a recognized industry leader in information sharing and business intelligence. She has participated in the EDW (and its predecessor forums) over the past 25 years sharing experiences on data strategies in today's enterprises. She will be on hand to discuss the exciting developments in the emerging field of semantics and the tremendous potential semantics offer to enhance business agility. She will point out how traditional data management approaches lack sufficient ability or flexibility to enable organizations to quickly sense, analyze, and adapt. By learning about practical semantic approaches, customers can accelerate the integration and use of data to significantly reduce costs and improve agility and responsiveness.
"The topic is vital because organizations cannot survive if they are not agile. The current state of data management limits the level of agility that organizations can achieve," says Ms. Walker. "It is essential to combine semantic approaches and technology with mature data management disciplines to enable rapid ingestion of new data to gain valuable insights that fuels sound, decisive actions and improved business outcomes."
