Cloud technology is evolving at rapid-fire speed. Forrester predicts that more than 50% of global enterprises will rely on at least one public cloud platform to drive digital transformation and delight customers. Plus, they claim that Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google and Microsoft will capture 76% of all cloud platform revenue in 2018, expanding to 80% by 2020.
With all this skyrocketing growth, how will organizations leverage the agility and flexibility that the cloud provides, if they have a data architecture based on a mix of on-premises and cloud-based data sources?
Data virtualization addresses this mixed environment by creating a hybrid data fabric that spans both cloud and on-premises solutions. It also provides a unified data access and a strong security and governance layer for enterprise data. This hybrid data fabric supports use cases that include cloud-to-cloud integration (e.g. SaaS applications), cloud-to-ground integration, migration of data sources/applications to cloud, and analytics in the cloud.
Additionally, data virtualization offers organizations the ability to not only integrate cloud with on-premise data sources in real-time, but also to securely publish petabyte-scale data across the widest range of reporting and analytical tools through JDBC/ODBC/RESTful/SOAP/OData and many other protocols.
Denodo is accelerating cloud adoption by forming alliances with partners such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft, where the Denodo Platform is now available on their marketplaces. Plus, the Denodo Platform can also be deployed on Heroku, Google and other cloud platforms.
