Composite Software Named a Leader in Independent Research Firm’s Data Virtualization Report
Composite Software announced today that a January 2012 report from independent research firm Forrester Research, Inc., “The Forrester Wave™: Data Virtualization, Q1 2012,” concludes that “customers like Composite Software’s easy-to-use solution, tight integration to support most uses cases, and its lower cost, compared with larger software providers.” Composite Software was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its data virtualization research report. In this evaluation, Composite Software received perfect scores for data services performance and data services integration.
“Composite Software has done well over the years, improving its solution dramatically, adding more advanced data virtualization capabilities, and delivering innovative products,” the report states. “Among pure-play data virtualization vendors, Composite Software is often shortlisted by customers largely because of its visibility and strong product offering. Composite Software supports some of the most complex data virtualization deployments in existence, in part because it has been active in this market as long as or longer than any other player.”
According to the report, “the data virtualization market continues to grow strongly, with more mature solutions supporting large deployments. Forrester predicts that total software revenues (licenses, maintenance and services) in data virtualization will grow to $8 billion by $2014.
“In the early years of this market, most data virtualization was focused primarily on the financial services, telecom, and government sectors,” according to the Forrester report. “However, in the past 24 months, we have seen a significant increase in adoption in the healthcare, insurance, retail, manufacturing, eCommerce, and media/entertainment sectors. Regardless of industry, all firms can benefit from data virtualization, especially when integrating larger numbers of data sources, delivering real time data, and integrating with a wide range of data types.
“Organizations are looking to solve tough data and process integration challenges as the once again begin to invest in new business capabilities,” said Forrester. “Data virtualization solutions provide a virtualized data services layer that integrates data from heterogeneous data sources and content in time, near-real time, or batch as needed to support a wide range of applications and processes.”
Added Composite Software CEO Jim Green, “On behalf of our more than 500 customers who have entrusted us to provide them a cost-effective, rapid time-to-value solution, we are honored to be named a data virtualization leader by Forrester Research. It is very gratifying to see data virtualization emerge as the go-to approach for enterprises seeking business agility.”
