What Red Hat is doing with JBoss Data Virtualization 6 is very nice. Red Hat is leveraging its strength with JBoss Data Virtualization 6 to create a mostly open source platform that can very easily tie together disparate data and application sources. This opens a lot of doors with business buyers, not just IT and developers, said analyst Brad Shimmin.
 



Open source software company Red Hat is making some big promises around its JBoss Data Virtualization 6 platform for big data integration and unified access across disparate data sources. The promised result: faster actionable insights.

Data is spread across organizations in various big data and traditional stores such as Apache Hadoop, relational databases and NoSQL stores such as MongoDB. Often, and the challenge is integrating and transforming data for access and productive use.

The difficulty of making this data accessible to external applications, such as analytics and business intelligence software, can be barriers to effectively leveraging these technologies to extract valuable and actionable information from the data. Red Hat is confident JBoss Data Virtualization helps solve this problem by allowing for simultaneous access to these disparate stores.

“Information management and delivery are critical functions of modern business operations,” said Craig Muzilla, senior vice president, Applications Platform Products Group at Red Hat. “If organizations are going to have any success translating meaningless data into actionable information, integration tools like JBoss Data Virtualization play a key role in making the data readily accessible.”

Data to Actionable Insight

JBoss Data Virtualization offers native out-of-the-box connectivity to various data sources with diverse access methods and storage models. According to Red Hat, data from these sources is abstracted and presented in a way that frees developers to focus on the creation and delivery of their applications without having to know the technical and compatibility nuances associated with each data source and type.

Red Hat ticked off a list of IT projects and initiatives JBoss Data Virtualization supports, including self-service business intelligence, a unified 360-degree view, agile service-oriented architecture applications, and better compliance control.

"The volume, velocity and variety of data in the enterprises are on the rise. The need to transform this data into actionable insight is a top priority for today's CIO,” said Karl Van den Bergh, vice president of Products and Alliances at Jaspersoft Corp. “Red Hat and Jaspersoft bring together a comprehensive and easy-to-use solution that delivers ‘data to actionable insight,' helping to turn an organization's untapped and underutilized data into competitive advantage."
