Data virtualization performance leader Composite Software has joined with IPL (Information Processing Limited), a UK-based IT services company specializing in the delivery of intelligent business solutions, to offer data virtualization products and services that increase return on information assets for greater business benefits in the energy, financial services and pharmaceutical industries. This partnership brings to market the best practices and skills IPL developed at successful, enterprise-scale Composite data virtualization implementations within a global top-five integrated energy provider as well as within a global top-five global pharmaceutical company.
“Data virtualization is approaching the stage whereby it will be a must-have in every large scale enterprise’s information management and architecture strategy,” said Philip Howard, research director with Bloor Research, headquartered in London, England. “However, as organizations adopt technologies such as Composite Software’s to bridge the silos that exist within their enterprises then the use of well-designed, shared data models will become of ever greater importance, raising the need for complementary data governance and modeling services.”
“The rapid growth of information assets at our large energy, financial services and pharmaceutical clients is a business opportunity for those who can successfully leverage these assets,” said Chris Bradley, Business Consulting Director at IPL and co-author of Data Modeling for the Business: A Handbook for Aligning the Business with IT using High-Level Data Models. “Successfully deployed, data virtualization can be the key that can unlock these assets with agility and cost savings at an enterprise-scale. Our role is to guide the strategy, architecture, governance, and modeling and thereby ensure success.”
Through this partnership, organizations can access a full complement of IPL Information Management Services delivered by IPL Business Consultants skilled in the use of the Composite Data Virtualization Platform. This includes examining how corporate information is structured, investigating the approaches for managing and delivering high quality data with high performance, and deploying the data virtualization architecture and solution to achieve business goals.
“Composite has proven itself to be the gold standard for extremely large scale data virtualization deployments, especially in information-centric enterprises in industries such as banking, energy and health care,” said Robert Eve, EVP Marketing at Composite. “IPL has proven its ability to guide the data architecture, modeling, and governance these large deployments require. This track record of mutual success and best practices learned at several of the world’s largest and most complex companies will accelerate data virtualization benefits achieved by our future joint customers.”
