Data virtualization provides organizations with the ability to allow the business and IT sides of organizations to work closer together in a much more agile fashion, and helps to reduce the complexity.
Data virtualization can reduce unnecessary copies, the root of data proliferation, said BJ Fesq, chief architect and chief data officer of CIT Group, at Data Summit 2016.
Virtualization addresses the organizations’ need to achieve a comprehensive view of their data, while avoiding the need to rip and replace physical systems already in place.
Successful solutions will offer enterprises agile development, a secure virtual data layer, and real-time data access and provisioning.
