With the growing volumes of data and increasing demands for its availability, there is an urgent need to provide a more agile data provisioning service that will allow data from various sources to be integrated into the company's architecture.
That's why Vodafone (News - Alert) Netherlands, chose to purchase the Composite Data Virtualization Platform, which is expected to complement and extend its current computing infrastructure, according to officials.
“We are pleased to welcome Vodafone Netherlands to the growing list of global telecommunications providers who have discovered the business agility afforded by the Composite data virtualization solution,” said Ché Wijesinghe, executive vice president, worldwide field operations at Composite software.
With business units seeking access to new data sources for getting new insights, Vodafone Netherlands' move to purchase the Composite's Data Virtualization platform was a positive step to simplify information access for big data and logical data warehouse initiatives, while delivering greater agility for the business, flexibility for IT and significant cost savings for everyone.
“With Composite, we are confident to bridge the gap between the increasing impatience of our business users in exploiting more and more data and giving them the ability to do so,” noted Michael Hansen, manager, business intelligence competence center at Vodafone Netherlands.
According to Hansen, having an in-house capability like Composite next to outsourcing capabilities is rather important.
Vodafone Netherlands, part of the Vodafone Group, consists of a teradata data warehouse with 20 terabytes of customer data, Ab Initio for data integration and SAP (News - Alert)/Business Objects for reporting and analysis. These data services when put into operation using the Composite Information Server, is expected to make the outsourcing of the development for the ETL more direct.
