UNIFY DATA for
Next-Generation Initiatives
Take advantage of data virtualization to boost business intelligence

C

an true business intelligence exist without a comprehensive, enterprisewide view
of all data? Yes, if you don't mind making decisions on partial information. Yet
that can be just as risky as making decisions on inaccurate or outdated data.

Adam Redd
is vice president
of development
for GT Software.

It's only when the enterprise
can utilize its data in real time
regardless of format, location
and structure that it can accurately assess, measure and
transform it into intelligence for
competitive advantage.
The challenge lies in gaining
that comprehensive, real-time
view. For many organizations, data
varies significantly in location and
structure. Locations may include
mainframe, an on-premises server
or cloud storage. Structures may be

differing relational schemas or a
complex variety of NoSQL formats.
These differences in location and
structure mean that valuable data
resides in multiple locations without a means to effectively integrate
and leverage it for development,
reporting and innovation-and the
situation is compounded by the
rapid rate at which data changes in
the big data era.
The solution is to not only unify
data in a virtual location independent of technology, but to also

create a flexible data environment
where applications can interact
and update dynamic data in real
time. This creates a data engine
primed to scale for future company needs.

Why Data
Virtualization Matters
Unifying data by way of a virtual
environment-where dependence on native devices and
applications is no longer an
issue-prepares organizations to
