The way decision are made in organisations is changing. The biggest change is that they have to react faster. We can include that our BIsystems have to be more flexible, more agile. In addition, new forms of reporting and analytics are being requested by the user community, such as operational analytics, 360° reporting, exploratory analysis, deep and Big Data analytics, self-service BI, and semi-structured and unstructured data analytics. All these new requirements demand that BI systems are developed in a more agile way. One of the technologies making this possible today is Data Virtualization.
This seminar focuses on Data Virtualization when deployed in Business Intelligence systems. In one day the advantages of Data Virtualization are explained; products are compared, application areas are discussed; and the relationship with related topics, such as MDM, Data Governance, and SOA are also discussed.
