Data Virtuality provides data integration solutions that help companies to easily connect and manage their data from multiple data sources such as APIs, databases and flat files.

The Data Virtuality Logical Data Warehouse, a high-performance data virtualization solution, allows you to leverage your existing data environment through instant data access, data centralization, automation and data governance. This solution marries two distinct technologies to create an entirely new manner of integrating data. The combination of data virtualization and next generation ETL enables an agile data infrastructure with high performance.

With the Data Virtuality Logical Data Warehouse you can connect to multiple data sources and query data from there by using SQL, regardless of the source file's format. It enables you to integrate your data and create a central data logic that covers the business logic and the logical connections between the different systems.
