While DV is valuable across these other patterns, I want to highlight the new architectural pattern taking hold as a second key application of the technology that is being referred to as Transactional Data Virtualization (TDV). This pattern would simply not be possible without TDV.
Most people associate DV exclusively with its “first face,” Business Intelligence. The second face may surprise you as you absorb the concept of taking DV from reporting to operations. Data is federated live directly from the sources, served up on-demand to applications or to end users in portals, and updated by the application or user, effecting a heretofore unparalleled agility and efficiency to your business.
