Tell us what you need when it comes to data virtualization!

IBM is requesting your input to help inform our current product strategy around data virtualization and federation technology. In order to offer solutions to business challenges in this area, we have assembled a short survey and hope you will take time to provide us your feedback.

Data virtualization allows organizations to query many data sources as if they were a single repository, in order to provide comprehensive information that is readily consumable by Analytics, digital applications and users without having to copy/move data or employ traditional ETL practices.
Key areas for use are:
  • Modernization for faster, easier delivery of modern systems of engagement
  • Real-time analytics that meet immediate needs of the business
  • Optimization to reduce the cost/complexity of accessing organizational data
Your feedback will not be distributed, shared or used with any entity outside of IBM, and only used by IBM to drive features and functionality. There are no guarantees around timing or actual deliverables from your input.  If you want to talk more about data virtualization requirements , please feel free make note of this in the survey.
