In this webinar Steve Hamby, Managing Director Government, discusses semantic graph technology to help Federal Government CIOs and their agency staff that are researching enterprise data management and mining tools understand how Smart Data Lakes can be a superior mechanism for addressing their top data priorities. Here are the slides from his presentation.
