Accelerate Migration to the Cloud Using Data Virtualization

Federal agencies are adopting cloud at a fast pace. Migration of critical enterprise information resources can be challenging when dealing with complex mission systems and data architectures. Building the right data services architecture using a Logical Data Fabric approach recommended by Gartner and Forrester can reduce agency risk and minimize impact to users, enabling agencies to gain maximum benefit from cloud initiatives in the form of agility, cost savings, and more.

In this TechTalk, you’ll learn:

  • How data virtualization’s multi-location architecture can simplify and accelerate cloud migration.
  • How to leverage Denodo’s virtual data services layer to address and augment cloud solutions such as data warehouse modernization, data science, and data lakes in the cloud.
