Why you need data virtualization: feat. Rick van der Lans

The exponential growth of data combined with tougher requirements for data availability, manageability, and data quality are challenging for traditional data management and analytics tools that depend on physical movement of data.

With data virtualization you can avoid much of the complexities of ETL and have a data management solution that is cheaper and more flexible, while greatly improving your time to data and ensuring better data quality in a fully governed and secure way.

Join us to learn what data virtualization is, what it can do for your business, and how other organizations are using it. Data virtualization will be an important building block in your future data management solution.
10: 00 - 11: 00 CET
