We are revealing day after day all those professionals who are going to participate with their papers within the most important event of Data Management. For the first time, a forum tries to focus on Data Management in its entirety, from governance, through security, the cloud, machine learning, data virtualization and much more. One of the most appreciated papers in the last edition of the DMS was Marek’s one, demonstrating Querona. This year will propose different success cases applied to Data Virtualization. Marek Byszewski will be present in both editions of DMS in Italy and Spain

Tell us a little about your professional career

Software engineer with over 20 years of software development practice for enterprises from various sectors of the economy. CTO of YouNeedIT – an independent software vendor specializing in data virtualization and building business analytics and big data solutions.

I’m in a co-organizer of industry conferences, an activist of passionate groups in the field of high technologies.

Helps organizations in the digital transformation and democratization of access to data, advocating the principle of «data is the new oil.»

What are your challenges, what do you like to do with the data?

Main challenges I see is the count of data sources that we use to build modern BI solutions, growing volumes of data coming from IoT devices, and data democratization. Simply put, I expect that each stakeholder within the organization and beyond needs secure access to data resources from the organization itself and partner organizations, to be able to make informed decisions based on data.

Do you think companies have the right culture to manage data differently?

Even if companies do not have the “right culture,» they have to develop one. Data is needed everywhere, from an analytics solution to AI. Furthermore, information needs to be available to everyone in the organization, because market demands more from every employee – the decisions they make have to be made based on data.

What are the most important challenges for CIOs, CDOs, CTOs in 2020?

Advanced technologies, like cognitive computing, big data, AI, ML, robotics are transforming the nature of work and leading to augmentation and digitalization of employee experience.

Therefore I would point out the following challenges:

  1. Making the right data accessible to every stakeholder for self-service analytics and reporting
  2. Data security and compliance
  3. Adopting machine learning, IoT, advanced data analytics, and other cutting-edge technologies into the enterprise

What do you want to talk about at the Data Management Summit?

I’m going to talk about the data virtualization use cases from the field. I’ll explain what data virtualization is, how it can be of use to your organization and what scenarios are a good fit for data virtualization-oriented approach.

Since the beginning, you have supported the event Why?

I believe in the free exchange of ideas and knowledge sharing. I could not find a better event than the Data Management Summit. Will be great to have the same event in Poland.

Do you want to add something else?

I can’t wait to meet with all the attendees, and I look forward to fruitful discussions.

About Data Virtualization

There is still a lot of talk about Data-Driven Companies, but very few tools are concerned about avoiding tedious ETL processes. It is easy to look at the Front-End, but much more difficult to do in the Back-End,. Organizations need a solid Business Intelligence Front-End that can connect to the relational side of SQL. Qlikview, TARGIT, PowerBI, Tableau, and even Excel can give you results from an SAP source in a few minutes and four clicks using a tool like Querona.  The next-generation Logical Data Warehouse will allow you to indicate the data source and set whether it will be loaded once a day, at night, in the morning, into the Cloud or anywhere else. Everyone can always have access to it, where and when they want. For do that you need a Data Virtualization tool like Querona or Denodo.

Data Virtualization (DV) is unlike traditional Data Integration, where change must be made on multiple layers; Data Virtualization makes change easy for the business as new requirements and sources can be integrated and changed rapidly.

The Data Management Association International (DAMA) Data Management Book of Knowledge (DMBOK), second edition, describes Data Virtualization as:

Data Virtualization enables distributed databases, as well as multiple heterogeneous data stores, to be accessed and viewed as a single database. Rather than physically performing ETL on data with transformation engines, Data Virtualization servers perform data extract, transform and integrate virtually.”
