Data virtualization for Dummies

Organizations are challenged by ever-growing data volumes, as well as data types that are increasingly diverse.

Data virtualization is a modern approach to data integration. It transcends the limitations of traditional techniques by delivering a simplified, unified, and integrated view of trusted business data in real time or near-real time, as needed by consuming applications, processes, analytics, or business users.
