Having the data fabric as a separate choice from AI here is misguided - since data fabrics are not about data sharing - they are inherently about insight-driven automation.  Data Fabrics are dependent on AI, ML, and other advance technologies (like Graph) to 'activate' the insights buried in metadata.  In the future, data fabrics will be how AI is operationalized, at scale, within most large organizations.

Thanks Hawker. I intentionally kept these two separately since data fabric mean to bridge gaps or simplified access between data provider to data consumer (end point) including if data consumed as ML workload. Even i am firm believer of domain data fabric combining mesh and fabric together to bring domain ownership along with accessible, transparent end point consumption. AI here is more of understanding trend & investment going in developing AI / DS use cases to bridge process bottleneck... Thanks for your feedback..

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
