Off to a roaring start after its November 1, 2017 acquisition, TIBCO Data Virtualization has been named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Data Virtualization, Q4 2017 by Forrester Research.
Forrester believes that enterprise data virtualization has become critical to every organization in overcoming growing data challenges by delivering faster access to connected data and support self-service and agile data-access capabilities for EA pros to drive new business initiatives.
According to the report, 56% of global technology decision makers claim they have already implemented, are implementing, or are expanding or upgrading their implementations of DV technology in 2017, up from 45% in 2016.
The analyst firm had the following to say about the TIBCO acquisition:
“We see this as a big opportunity for TIBCO to expand its data management and integration capabilities by integrating its existing in-memory, graph, analytics, data quality, and master data management with Cisco’s DV solution. This will help TIBCO deliver an end- to-end data and analytics platform to support new business use cases that require orchestration of silos in real time with self-service and automation capabilities.” —The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Data Virtualization, Q4 2017
