Data Virtualization – The Fast Track to Agile Business Intelligence (BI)
An Informatica Workshop featuring Rick van der Lans
Monday 11 June 2012 – Grange City Hotel, London
We would like to invite you to the Informatica Workshop: “Data Virtualization – The Fast Track to Agile BI” on Monday 11 June (09.00 – 14.00) at the Grange City Hotel in London. The keynote will be from Rick van der Lans – internationally acclaimed speaker and author of the industry’s first independent book on Data Virtualization.
“Data virtualization is a technology that makes a heterogeneous set of databases and files look like one integrated database. When used in Business Intelligence systems, it can make the architectures dramatically simpler, cheaper, and, most importantly, more agile. New reporting and analytical needs can be implemented faster and existing systems can be changed more easily. This increased agility is needed because, on one hand, business users demand more agility from their systems since their world is changing, and because, on the other hand, new forms of Business Intelligence, such as operational reporting, Big Data analytics, 360 degrees reporting, self-service reporting, exploratory analysis, are required.”
Excerpt from “Data Virtualization for Business Intelligence Architectures” – Rick van der Lans (due to be published in the summer of 2012)
Data virtualization holds great promise for BI and Master Data Management (MDM) projects – but only when it combines the sophistication of data integration and the agility of data federation. Join Rick van der Lans and Informatica’s Ash Parikh for an interactive workshop to learn more about:
