Succeeding with - Data Virtualization — Part 1
High Value Use Cases for Analytical Data Services
Mike Ferguson, Intelligent Business Strategies
Analytical or informational use of virtual data services produce integrated information for reporting, dashboards, CPM scorecards and analysis from multiple underlying heterogeneous data sources. This data can be used to support decisions made by executives, line managers, front-line staff and external users. They may also integrate historical and live operational data (sometimes referred to as an extended data warehouse pattern) for a holistic view of business activity to support specific business tasks e.g. 360 degree view of the customer for sales. Data sources may include relational databases, files, enterprise applications, cloud data, NoSQL data stores, web services, spreadsheets, HTML and unstructured data.

Virtual Data High Value Use cases for Operational and Data Management Data Services
Mike Ferguson, Intelligent Business Strategies
Operational or transactional use of virtual data services support transaction processing activity across one or more underlying systems so that data can be created and maintained. Data virtualization can also be used to deliver virtual data management services. These include virtual master data services, virtual ODS and virtual data marts (to facilitate agile business intelligence) and virtual data source information services to simplify data capture for easier ETL processing. All of these help simplify data governance and enterprise information management (EIM).
Data Virtualization Goes Mainstream - Solving key data integration challenges with more agility than traditional technologies for structured, unstructured, Web, Cloud and Big Data sourcesWhite paper featuring customer case studies that demonstrate how integrated and real-time views of organizations' critical business information from across a broad spectrum of disparate data (structured, unstructured, Web, Cloud and Big Data) from both within and outside the enterprise is being realized with Denodo's Data Virtualization technology, allowing companies to combine, query and publish data sources in ways that were not possible before.

Web Automation using Enterprise Data Mashups to Bring Web 2.0 to the EnterpriseThe exponential increase in information accessible on the Web presents a real challenge for organizations wanting to leverage that for business use. Traditional protocol-based integration techniques can work with highly standardized and stable sources, but simply cannot keep pace with the rest. This paper addresses how the holistic approach Denodo takes to Web Automation offers an advanced platform to extract and integrate Web data and develop and deploy web processes under a common IT infrastructure to create a virtual data integration using all data and application assets within an organization.
Data Virtualization R: a success story
Leveraging the real value of all data is not an easy task. Organizations compile and store data from multiple channels, stored in different information systems, from heterogeneous environments, and in different formats. Direct and real time access to data and the efficient management of this data is a growing concern. The scale of the problem is such that it can lead to the downfall not only of ICT projects, but also of strategic business initiatives and even companies. An organization´s data integration layer is a critical component and there is a tendency to be overly optimistic about its situation.
This case study analyses R - a leading fiber-optic communications provider in Spain — and the implementation of data virtualization, and demonstrates how the initial investment is quickly leveraged with demonstrable ROI in less than 1 year.
