If you are a frequent reader of the Data Virtualization Leadership Blog, you already understand how data virtualization can simplify information access and improve business agility.
The editors and analysts advisory board of one of the top IT media sources, Information Management, recently demonstrated similar understanding of data virtualization’s rising importance within the overall IT landscape.
40 Vendors to Watch: 2012
For the past three years Information Management has published its 40 Vendors to Watch where according to the 2012 edition “we bring you our list of up and coming vendors on our radar that are doing their part to shape the groundswell in information management technology in the 21st Century.
As always, our editors take notes throughout the year and we ring up our most trusted analysts and contributors, a dozen in all, to help us shape the pack. This year’s list started with well over 100 nominees, including some companies that have made the list in past years (marked with an asterisk below), so we looked for common threads and made the interviews more rigorous where we could.
Our advisers held steady with a case for data virtualization.”
“Our selection advisory board held steady with a case for data virtualization and Composite Software was identified as a company that is helping shape the groundswell in information management technology in the 21st Century,” said Information Management Editorial Director Jim Ericson.
“Stalwart and standup, one of a few innovators to carve a future out of data virtualization and federation. Integrating disparate data sources is the specialty; what you get are virtual data marts, virtual operational data stores and data abstraction layers.”
“Name recognition is not a problem for Denodo, which has plied the virtual integration space for a long time now and with regular appearances on the Forrester Wave and other product reviews. If you hate ETL and like the sound of information as a service you’ll be looking this over sooner or later.”
