DALLAS, TEXAS – Gluent Inc., developer of revolutionary data virtualization software, announces that on August 7, 2017 it was listed in by Gartner Inc.’s “Market Guide for Data Virtualization, 2017” report.
Gartner’s report outlines key findings and recommendations in the arena of Data Virtualization and “profiles 17 vendors for data and analytics leaders as they incorporate data virtualization to provide faster data access through flexibility and agility”, of which Gluent is one.
Gluent agrees with Gartner’s thoughts on Data Virtualization and Data Federation. The report states:
Data federation is a process that is used to simply create a unified view of data from many disparate data sources. Data virtualization technology, on the other hand, provides more than just a composite view of data (from disparate data sources) through the federation of queries.
Modern data virtualization tools also provide both read and write access to a host of popular data sources and data types (such as relational, Hadoop, NoSQL, flat files, cloud data stores, XML and JSON). They could also provide additional features, including a metadata repository, ability to persist transformed and federated queries (and subqueries), and advanced security and query processing features, which were previously missing in first-generation data federation tools.
