According to a TDWI Q1 2020 Best Practices Report survey, “Less than half (45 percent) of organizations indicate that they are satisfied with the time it takes to load data into cloud platforms, with only five percent claim to be ‘very’ satisfied. Organizations can use data virtualization to significantly reduce data movement and ETL across hybrid, multi-cloud data platforms as it offers views of data in place.”

Denodo customers across the world leverage data virtualization to deploy logical data fabrics to solve their IoT analytics, customer 360, and cloud migration problems. Companies are continuing to move to the cloud to take advantage of its agility and flexibility and empower their business users with real-time data-driven insights for critical business decision making. Some of the most important data-centric initiatives for companies irrespective of their industries, are multi-cloud architecture, data science initiatives, and self-service information consumption.

Data-minded professionals across the globe will share why a logical data fabric architecture which includes data virtualization, an integrated data catalog, and a strong machine learning/artificial intelligence algorithm baked in, is imperative for the success of their critical business initiatives.

“We are very excited to be able to present our success story of deploying a logical data fabric within our organization,” said Ralph Aloe, Director of IT at Prudential Financial. “At Prudential our business strategy is tightly aligned with our data strategy because of the logical data fabric that we have deployed with Denodo and I believe that should be the most important goal for any forward-thinking organization.”

“Enterprises rely on data and insights for competitive advantage, customer delight, operational efficiency, and a host of other benefits and business impacts,” said Brian Bulkowski, chief technology officer at Yellowbrick. “The Denodo Fast Data Strategy Virtual Summit will be a place to learn the latest best practices to make the most of your data strategy and I’m excited to share my thoughts on logical data fabric, which is critical to next-generation data management.”

“For the last five years, Fast Data Strategy Virtual Summit has been one of the most notable, trend-setting virtual conferences for data-minded professionals,” said Ravi Shankar, SVP and CMO at Denodo. “As we embark on 2020, data fabric has become top-of-mind for CIOs and CDOs. I am thrilled to see many of our customers already implementing a logical data fabric with the Denodo Platform’s advanced features and capabilities, and I look forward to seeing many more such success stories involving our customers and partners.”
