Composite Software Executives Presenting at Upcoming International Business Intelligence Conferences


Composite Software executives and data virtualization experts David Besemer and Robert Eve will discuss the role of data virtualization as part of a data integration strategy to achieve business agility on November 6 at two leading international business intelligence conferences.

Besemer, Composite Software CTO, will be joined by Shaun de Souza, Manager, BI strategy, technology, and integration services for Telus, one of Canada's leading telecommunications companies, to discuss Architecting for BI Agility: A Data Virtualization Case Study at Telus at the Salon Business Intelligence conference in Montreal, Canada. With information access the key to agility, and new big data and cloud opportunities emerging, attendees will hear how innovative IT organizations such as Telus are adapting to keep pace. Besemer and de Souza will detail how Telus, Bell Canada, NYSE, Qualcomm, Pfizer and others use data virtualization to deliver the critical information their agile businesses require. Key topics include:

  • Why Telus adopted data virtualization
  • Where Telus has applied data virtualization
  • What business benefits has Telus achieved from data virtualization
  • Why big data and cloud computing are breaking traditional data integration paradigms
  • How data virtualization increases BI agility

“Telus and hundreds of other organizations deploy data virtualization to meet a wide range of business challenges and data integration needs. We appreciate the opportunity to tell their story,” Besemer said.

Eve, executive VP of Marketing with Composite Software and co-author of the book Data Virtualization: Going Beyond Traditional Data Integration to Achieve Business Agility, will speak on the book topic at Data Warehouse & Business Intelligence Conference Europe in London, England, where Composite Software is an event sponsor. Eve will discuss data virtualization use cases across a range of industries and functions, as well the best practices for starting a data virtualization project. “Simplifying information access is something everyone seeks. But data virtualization users have this access today and agility too. It's a privilege to relay their stories,” Eve said.
