Data Virtualization: The time is now


Today, data virtualization continues to gain significant traction in the market. As data types and volumes grow relentlessly and users demand access to ever timelier and more integrated information, we see continued growth in the use cases where data virtualization is the only answer for those looking for agile, timely solutions with short term ROI.  In the past, data virtualization´s distant cousins – federation and EII – were less functional and often raised strong emotions, both for and against.  Understanding where, how and why to use these technologies is key.

In this webcast we examine where data virtualization should be a key component in projects looking to provide business intelligence agility, data warehouse and MDM extension and single entity views (call centers, CRM, support portals), etc.

What you will learn:

  • The real meaning and value of data virtualization
  • Business and technical drivers for data virtualization
  • A new architecture beyond business intelligence that explicitly includes data virtualization
  • Examples of how data virtualization addresses real business needs today
