CDPQ to present their digital transformation journey with Data Virtualization at Big Data and Analytics Summit Canada

Big Data and Analytics Summit 2021 – March 24 – 25, 2021

WHO: Denodo, the leader in data virtualization software, today announced that CDPQ, Canada’s second largest investment firm, will share how they created a logical data fabric enabled by data virtualization to help their business line carry out strategic projects. Francis Lafortune, Director of Data Platform and Analytics at CDPQ, will present “How CDPQ is embracing digital transformation with data virtualization.”

WHAT: CDPQ is on a mission to digitally transform its business model with the foundation being data-driven and artificial intelligence-ready. To fulfil this mission, CDPQ has created a logical data fabric with data virtualization, which comprises a data lake, a structured data environment (relational DB and DWPaaS), and data governance tools. This logical data fabric helps business users get a real-time global view of the CDPQ's portfolio, including portfolio performance, exposure and risk metrics as well as the characteristics of the portfolio. Simplicity of CDPQ’s data architecture enables faster project delivery for business users.

WHY: Data virtualization, and the Denodo Platform in particular, marks a paradigm shift in the approach that organizations take towards accessing, integrating, and provisioning the data required to meet business goals. The Denodo Platform simplifies data access from a myriad of legacy and modern data sources including social media, streaming data, unstructured web data, making critical business information immediately available to end users and consuming applications. Denodo’s data virtualization innovations, including dynamic data cataloging, dynamic query optimization and in-memory massive parallel processing make the analytics journey compelling.

WHEN: The Big Data and Analytics Summit Canada opens on March 24th, 2021. Francis Lafortune will deliver the CDPQ case study on Wednesday, March 24th at 12:30 pm EDT.
