Data virtualization is an increasingly necessary tool in organisations and businesses that face an exponentially increasing amount of data to process and make sense of.After all, we live, breathe in a world dominated by data. The Data Age 2025 study, carried out by IDC, predicts that by the year 2025 the generation of information will amount to a total of 163 zettabytes, which means that its volume will increase 10 times worldwide. So it’s not hard to see why data virtualization is growing in popularity, because the fact is that physically moving and storing the same data in different repositories multiplies costs and slows down processes. While data virtualization allows access to all data from a single point, without duplicating it, it does provide the ability of caching when necessary. Hence it is increasingly helping to drive digital transformation within companies both large and small.
