Data virtualization use cases cover more integration tasks

June 14, 2019 / Craig Stedman

Gartner predicts that 60% of organizations will deploy data virtualization software as part of their data integration tool set by 2020. That's a big jump from the adoption rate of about 35% the consulting and market research company cited in a November 2018 report on the data virtualization market. But the technology "is rapidly gaining momentum," a group of four Gartner analysts wrote in the report. The analysts said data virtualization use cases are on the rise partly because IT teams are struggling to physically integrate a growing number of data silos, as relational database management system (DBMS) environments are augmented by big data systems and other new data sources. They also pointed to increased technology maturity that has removed deployment barriers for data virtualization users.
