SAN MATEO, Calif., Oct 13, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Recognized for their innovative applications of data virtualization middleware, executives from Deutsche Bank, Northern Trust and Comag Marketing Group LLC, each received awards at the IT industry’s first-ever Data Virtualization Day, held recently in New York City. The event also featured a keynote address by Gartner, Inc. VP Distinguished Analyst Ted Friedman, who presented for the first time his “Data Integration Manifesto” with its five keys to successful data integration as a guide to enterprises as they evolve their IT infrastructure in pursuit of more effective and efficient data delivery.
Sponsored by Composite Software, Inc., Data Virtualization Day was attended by more than 100 IT professionals representing Global 2000 enterprises in the financial services, banking, life sciences/pharmaceutical, telecommunications, media, energy and other information-intensive industries. This industry event followed the annual, invitation-only Composite Software Customer Advisory Council held in New York City on Oct. 5.
Neil Fletcher, director of Reference Data at Deutsche Bank, one of the world’s leading financial service providers, accepted the award for “High Impact” in recognition of the bank’s “Data Vault” project that “has pulled the bank together from small projects into a more effective, unified system.” Len Hardy, SVP, Operations and Technology at Northern Trust, an international financial services company based in Chicago, received the “Rapid Deployment” award for “exceeding the expectations of the business by delivering significant results ahead of schedule with his team’s Securities Lending Portal and Investment Office Outsourcing use cases.” Sean Poccia, senior IT director, Comag Marketing Group LLC, a jointly owned company of Conde Nast Publications, Inc. and The Hearst Corporation, received the “Customer Value” award for “consistently achieving and promoting data virtualization value across his organization and in the broader data integration market by leveraging such work as the Comag Application Data Hub.”
In his keynote address, Friedman unveiled “The Data Integration Manifesto” with its five pillars for success: standardize, diversify, unify, leverage and govern. Friedman talked about the ways leading organizations are extending their data integration repertoire to address new problems and deliver new solutions.
“Attendees told us they can’t wait to apply the practical advice they learned from the all-star lineup of data virtualization innovators,” said Jim Green, CEO, Composite Software. “We’re thrilled by this enthusiasm, largely generated by our customer speakers who generously shared their time and wisdom with their technical peers.”
