Composite Software, a data virtualization vendor, says it is joining with Clarity Resource Group, a business intelligence (BI) consulting firm, to offer data virtualization products and services that increase BI agility in financial services, communications, retail, health care and energy industries.
There are a number of new challenges that arise as data virtualization deployments expand from integrating the data for a single project to serving multiple projects, David Besemer, CTO for Composite Software, tells 5 Minute Briefing. "For example, there needs to be greater coordination of various development and enterprise architecture teams as well as greater emphasis on best practice methods," he says. "Standards also become more essential as organizations seek the benefits of object reuse across a wider global infrastructure. Firms such as Clarity not only understand the technology, but also how to drive the people and process change that ensures enterprise-scale success."
The alliance between Composite and Clarity provides guidance that enables Composite's customers to access all business services delivered by Clarity's Data Virtualization Practice. Clarity's analysts, architects, developers and program managers work in tandem with Composite's Professional Services team.
Composite emphasizes more agile data integration approaches, while Clarity's focus area is helping business leaders achieve objectives through more results-focused BI solutions.
