Data Virtualization: A Unified Platform for Insights

| February 27, 2019

2019 is the year of the data-driven organization. The more data an organization collects, the more insights they will have, right? Well no actually, it’s more about how you glean the insights from the data rather than how much data you have collected. The challenge many organizations face is that as their repositories multiply in number, so too does the number of data silos that are created. The data becomes scattered across multiple operational and analytical systems, making it very difficult to integrate, and as a result, insights are few and far between; hardly the best environment for a “data-driven” organization. Typically, organizations will turn to bulk/batch ETL processes, loading their siloed data into an enterprise data warehouse to achieve an integrated view. While this method worked in the past, with the steady increase of data streams (for example, distributed mobile devices, consumer apps and applications, multichannel interactions and even social media interactions), implementation can take up to 12-24 months. By which time, the data is out of date and dashboards/analytics may need to be reworked. This timeframe is no longer practical for data-informed decision-making and business agility.
