Data Federation

TDWI Checklist Report // Data Federation

November 1, 2009

While data federation is not a new technique, data federation tools have recently broadened their capabilities and appeal. They go by many labels, including data virtualization, data services, and distributed query; they are used in a variety of situations, including data warehousing, reporting, dashboards, mashups, portals, master data management, data services in a service-oriented architecture (SOA), post-acquisition systems integration, and cloud computing.

This Checklist Report will help you understand when and how to use data federation tools to deliver optimal solutions.
