In this paper we discuss how agile data access, integration and delivery can be provided through the use of data virtualisation technology, regardless of the type of data to be accessed or where it is stored or located. We consider use cases and end-user benefits from using this approach. We also discuss how data virtualisation fits into the broader IT landscape within an enterprise architecture, and how it complements or competes with (mostly the former) other technologies. In particular, we discuss how data virtualisation complements both traditional ETL and data replication.
