Data Virtualization: Unleashing the Full Value of Big Data

Speakers: Rick F. van der Lans, Industry Analyst, R20/Consultancy

Big Data is being talked about everywhere… in IT and business conferences, venture capital, legal, medical and government summits, blogs and tweets … even in The Times newspaper! The prevailing mindset is that if you don’t have a Big Data project, you’re going to be left behind. In turn, CIO’s are feeling pressured to do something — anything — about Big Data. So while they are putting up Hadoop clusters and crunching some data, they need to ensure that they are not creating new data silos which will trap the real value of Big Data.

In this webinar, leading industry analyst and renown author, Rick van der Lans, will discuss how broad spectrum data virtualization can help to simplify the integration of Big Data with your existing information infrastructure (enterprise databases, data warehouses, ETL processes, and so on) to unlock the full potential of your Big Data projects.
