DIFFERENT APPROACHES COMPARED
According to Gartner the majority of data warehouse projects fail. Current data replication approaches using classical Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) processes fail to deliver results due to their inability to meet modern data infrastructure requirements.
Projects with classical ETL based data integration

6-9 months development cycles
ETL-based data integration is a labour-intense manual process following a strict 4-step procedure:
(3) develop and
leading to several months of implementation time.
Inflexible to changes
Manually develop and adapt connections to data sources reduces the speed of changing the data infrastructure. The greater the number of connected systems, the more complicated and inflexible data infrastructure becomes.
The concept of moving large amounts of data in a batch-oriented manner limits the possibilities to refresh data in the target storage. Data is at least a few hours old. Therefore, live data analysis or task automation is not possible.

Data Virtuality is offering a variety of features that make it possible to build an agile data infrastructure.
Data Virtuality puts one virtual layer around connected data sources enabling users to query real-time data. Perform joins across multiple data sources on the fly.
With the ability to write to connected data sources Data Virtuality Server enables you to trigger actions based on data.
Use and analyze historical data.
Create a company-wide flexible data model. Based on virtual views all data can be modelled and changed to your business needs on the fly.
Access data and schedule updates from any web service using Data Virtuality’s CSV or XML/JSON query builder. Data Virtuality automatically applies a relational structure and enables you to modify the output format with a few clicks. Easily add data from web services to your data model by creating views.
Set rules for automated decision making and execute them. Automate data workflows and edit data in your data sources with the SQL queries you built.
Set up flexible schedules and choose from a variety of scheduling options: intervals down to one minute and schedules dependent on other jobs.
Gain full control with Data Virtuality’s transparent overview of all schedules and jobs.
Get data from binary logs without affecting the transactional performance of your data sources. Synchronise this data to your target storage.
Data Virtuality has a sophisticated user management system consisting of role based permissions. Assign certain permissions to roles and add them to users. Track actions by users in the audit log. Import existing permission rules from Active Directory and LDAP.
What our customers say
Being able to work productively right away is a big advantage for us compared to the usual month-long implementation times of traditional data warehouse projects.
Head of BI, Finance and HR
Before Data Virtuality we had to go into each of our databases, pull the data and stick it somehow with Excel together. Now we can access data at all times, set up reports in Data Virtuality, schedule data import jobs and make the reports available to everyone who needs it.
Senior Business Intelligence Manager
We can make considerably better use of our data systems. The transparency of information is significantly higher. Decision making is no longer based on intuition, but driven by data and is, therefore, well-founded.
