Winners' Circle by Ravi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer
Organizations have long used data as a strategic tool to better run their businesses. But making business-critical information available in a timely fashion is not easy because relevant data resides in disparate and, often, siloed systems spread across the enterprise. Business users waste time piecing together the data from these different systems and then correlating it, while IT teams try to automate the process using legacy data integration techniques like extract-transform-load (ETL), which is time-consuming and expensive.
Data virtualization is the more agile data integration style that presents the relevant, interrelated data, in real-time and with a consistent format, irrespective of underlying database systems, structures, and storage. Since data virtualization doesn’t replicate or store data, it delivers the complete, business-critical information at a fraction of the cost and time. Business users benefit from faster access to data and IT teams continue to deliver data undisrupted without worrying about changes to the underlying systems.
