Session title: IBM Data Virtualization

Session abstract: IBM Data Virtualization Manager (IBM DVM) unlocks the full potential of data on IBM Z to provide universal access to any application regardless of location or format required. In the past, previous data architectures struggle with real-time requirements, which are increasingly driven by today’s 24/7 mobile world.Additional challenges are introduced by the shift away from segment data perspectives to a 360-degree customer point. No matter how fast data is collected and moved, it will never be as fast as real-time, in-place access.

IBM DVM is addressing these challenges by providing fast, real-time, in-place access to your enterprise mainframe data. This session will discuss how data virtualization’s synergy with today’s API economy can evolve the information architecture on IBM Z by modernizing, accelerating and simplifying all enterprise applications that need mainframe data without actually moving the data.
