Understanding Data Virtualization

Data-driven decision-making stands as a key strategy for numerous companies globally. For decision-making to be effective, data must be provided to users promptly. Companies utilize ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) and ELT (Extract, Load, Transform) approaches to develop analytics layers from various data sources, aiding users in making informed decisions. However, both these paradigms face challenges in producing datasets on time for consumer use due to the involvement of multiple processes and tools.
