Today's enterprise faces unprecedented competitive pressure. IT organizations are in a race to enable the agile, efficient, responsive organization by embracing strategies such as cloud computing, business process optimization, master data management and complex event processing. But in the race to embrace these approaches and technologies, IT organizations are winning the battle but losing the war. They are overlooking the most fundamental asset of the enterprise - data. Success in the war for real operational responsiveness lies not with the latest trendy technology but in succeeding in unlocking, integrating, and transforming fragmented data about customers and products into consumer-friendly and reusable data services. Service oriented architecture gives us the battle plan to this goal but lacks the tactics and enabling solutions to execute the plan.
In this webinar, SOA and data integration expert David Linthicum will introduce you to the winning solution and tactics of real-time data virtualization so that you can supercharge your cloud, BPM, MDM, CEP, and SOA efforts. You'll learn what real-time data virtualization is and does, and how it directly benefits IT. See how to transform fragmented, difficult to access data into easy-to-consume, reusable data services that support the entire IT architecture.
In this webinar you will learn:
- The importance of data to SOA, cloud, BPM, and MDM efforts
- What data virtualization is and does
- How data virtualization turns your data into reusable assets
- Important data virtualization capabilities to look for
