The data integration landscape has changed radically in the past few years. What was once a relatively manageable problem of blending and unifying data from enterprise transaction systems has grown to encompass external data, web data, clickstream data, end-user data, big data, cloud data, and more. New expectations for information-driven business agility further compound the complexities of modern data integration. The ETL-based data warehouse is no longer enough. Data virtualization is a core component of next-generation data integration architectures, techniques, and technology.
