8:45 am The Role of Data Virtualization in the Era of Big Data & Predictive Analytics

“The world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data” - The Economist, May 2017.

Data is the critical component of all data and analytics initiatives, whether under the guise of digital transformation for increased efficiencies within departments or open data projects for improving public services. The biggest challenge is how do you make this data readily available and accessible to the users who need it while still maintaining control and security over this data.

Data virtualization is a technology that answers the challenge, allowing data owners to quickly and easily provide access to data - both internal and external to the organization - without having to move or copy the data into a centralized, shared location. Data virtualization also allows organizations to maintain control over their data - what data is shared and with whom - while avoiding the need to have appropriately filtered copies of the data for each type of user.

In this session, you will hear how:

  • Data Virtualization can accelerate and simplify data and analytics initiatives.
  • How Data Virtualization works with your existing technology to create a flexible and scalable modern data architecture.
  • How users, internal and external to the organization, can use Data Virtualization to access the data that they need, without having access to unnecessary data.
  • How IT can accelerate the rate at which they can deliver information to their users to provide more timely insights and support better and more informed decision making.
