SAP BusinessObjects Data Federator provides federated query capabilities by creating a virtual view of all data sources. This can be used as an acceleration path to BI deployment by providing agile and rapid data integration. It can also enable real-time delivery of trusted information. Data Federator allows a single SAP BusinessObjects universe or Crystal Report to map to multiple-sources and then optimally federates (integrates) queries against the individual sources directly.
Biography – Russell Beech, Founder of BI System Builders & Cornerstone Solution®
I architect data solutions and superintend the solutions that I architect. I build teams that are usually a mix of full-time employees and sub-contractors. I ensure mentoring and knowledge transfer. The emergence of big data has opened the door to a rise in interest in predictive analytics aka machine learning. For me the technology changes have provided the opportunity to architect data solutions which combine my enterprise data warehousing experience with data lake concepts and to apply my knowledge of statistics to that data to deliver predictive analytics. To that end I’m putting work into understanding how the evolving technologies hook in to each other. I have a focused interest in learning about big data technologies such as Hadoop, Hive, GCP BigQuery and machine learning and their integration/virtualization with the enterprise data warehouse.
