QlikView users no longer need to use spreadsheets or ETL to pull the data needed for reports or analytics. With Stone Bond’s Enterprise Enabler® Data Virtualization Platform the data is not moved from its original sources or location. No replication, staging, or batch copying means no more waiting in line for your IT department to get the data for your report.
Enterprise Enabler’s virtual models or lightweight virtual views can quickly be changed, reused or discarded to make creating dashboards easy. Simply point to the sources you need, indicate how they are related, and generate a virtual model with one click. When QlikView queries the virtual data model, the data is accessed live from the sources and delivered to QlikView directly.
The Enterprise Enabler platform provides a federated view of the underlying data. One of the usual complaints from the business users is that reports from different teams – sometimes using different reporting or visualization tools – often provide conflicting information when they are ostensibly reports based on the same data. This inability to get a consistent view of the business through reports and dashboards is a common driver for using data virtualization in Agile BI projects.
Instead of standing in the queue for IT services to have a data warehouse implemented, or building specialized databases for your information, you can leverage Enterprise Enabler’s Data Virtualization for rapid deployment of virtual data warehouses.
