Data Virtualisation at EDW 2011

Just completed my presentation on The role of Data Virtualisation at Enterprise Data World 2011. Really lively discussion on the big drivers for DV.

Fundamentally it's to:
  • Mask Complexity;
  • Improve Agility
  • Reduce Cost.
Check out my earlier post on DV here.

Now what kind of error caused this?

Early this morning, sighted in the river Avon, close to my office in my home town of Bath was what appeared to be a stranded naval vessel.

Bath is home to several Royal Navy departments
including Submarine design, however none of their designs have previously been seen outside the confines of the secure MoD establishments.

Curious onlookers gazed from Pulteney bridge and wondered what kind of navigation data error caused this. 

Or maybe it was a date er error ;)
