Data virtualization performance leader Composite Software has joined with Clarity Resource Group, a business intelligence (BI) consulting firm, to offer comprehensive data virtualization products and services that increase BI agility in financial services, communications, retail, health care and energy industries. This partnership represents a new data virtualization solution offering that is both strategic and holistic, and entirely unique in the market.
“Data virtualization should be a key element in any enterprise’s BI agility strategy,” said Shawn Rogers, Vice President Research - Business Intelligence at Enterprise Management Associates. “As data virtualization’s adoption advances from project-level deployments to enterprise-wide architectures, organizations require comprehensive strategy, planning, architecture and organizational development services in order to achieve their BI agility objectives at scale. This means they need guidance far beyond the installation and implementation activities typical of early-stage data virtualization projects.”
The alliance between Composite and Clarity provides exactly this kind of comprehensive guidance, enabling Composite’s customers to access the full complement of business services delivered by Clarity’s Data Virtualization Practice. The only practice of its kind in the BI space, its analysts, architects, developers and program managers work in tandem with Composite’s Professional Services team to maximize clients’ successes.
“Composite’s strength is helping IT better support their dynamic business users through more agile data integration approaches,” said Robert Eve, EVP Marketing at Composite. “Clarity’s strength is helping business leaders achieve their objectives through more results-focused BI solutions. By combining these strengths, we help clients adopt data virtualization as a business-led initiative that delivers significant business agility and higher returns.”
“Over the past seven years, early adopters in financial services, communications, health care, retail and energy have demonstrated data virtualization’s ability to alleviate the data movement bottlenecks that prevent IT agility,” said Jai Malhotra, Clarity’s Data Virtualization Practice Lead. “Now they want to accelerate their data virtualization success. That’s where Clarity comes in. We help companies establish data virtualization strategies and architectures that are business-aligned, so they maximize impact on business objectives, harness information value, and create actionable enterprise information assets.”
Data virtualization products and services from Composite and Clarity are available throughout North America and Europe.
