Universal Semantic Layer: More Important Than Ever

What is a Universal Semantic Layer? In this blog post, Dave Mariani, AtScale Co-Founder and CTO, speaks to the benefits of a Universal Semantic Layer, sharing that “by adding a Universal Semantic Layer to your architecture, you can drastically simplify your stack, not complicate it. To start with, you can retire multiple, proprietary and conflicting semantic layers that are tough to maintain and impossible to keep in sync. The key is that a semantic layer is useless and counterproductive unless it’s universal. All tool and cloud vendors want to convince you to stay within their walled gardens with their tool-specific semantic layers.”
