AAA Changes Wheels While Driving 70mph: Virtualized Data Helps Implement New Organizational Structure and Delivers Flexible Information Architecture

AAA of Northern CA, NV, and UT, an automotive, travel, insurance and financial services provider, recently decided to separate its auto club and insurance divisions into separate companies with separate data centers. AAA's Information Management team realized they needed to avert data chaos in the short term by providing a buffer layer for managed migration of data and applications. For this they chose data virtualization. This also allowed them to maintain many existing data services to application and analytical users, while bringing up new services and changing the underlying data sources and structure.
