Data Federation: Expanding the Data Integration Toolbox

Webinar Abstract
Data federation is an important tool in today’s data integration portfolio. Data and application architects use the middleware to query and join data from multiple sources on the fly and deliver the results to data-hungry decision makers. It makes a lot of sense to use data federation tools when it takes too long or costs too much to create a persistent store of consolidated data, such as a data warehouse or data mart. And the next generation toolset will be more tightly integrated with data integration platforms, offer greater scalability, flexibility and reuse , apply data quality rules, and support more complex transformations. This Webinar will explain how data federation works and the ideal situations in which to use it.

What you will learn:

  • What data federation is
  • Use cases for data federation
  • The limits of data federation
  • The components of a data federation tool
  • Next-generation toolsets and best practices
