What is Data virtualization

Transformation in technologies creating lots of changes in every related area. Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data-Science created a new kind of concept  in data platform, that is "Data Virtualization" .  By name it look like it might be related to server or network, but it is concept and logical method of data management.

Data virtualization is the method of manipulating data from various sources to develop a common, logical and virtual view of information so that it can be accessed by front-end solutions such as applications, dashboards and portals without having to know the data's exact storage location.

What are the benefits of Data virtualization?

·         Data virtualization increases revenues.
·         Data virtualization lowers costs.
·         Data virtualization reduces risks
·         It is much faster way to manage data.
·         It complements traditional data-warehouse
·         It maximize performance of overall information system environment.
·         Data virtualization automatically enables self-service BI.
·         It goes far beyond data federation.
·         Data virtualization is more agile than traditional method.
·         Data virtualization is the right context for Big Data and Data Lake.

The process of data virtualization involves
·         Abstracting
·         Transforming
·         Federating
·         Delivering of final data.

Data virtualization software is often used in tasks such as:
·         Data integration
·         Business integration
·         Service-oriented architecture data services
·         Enterprise search

Data virtualization allows an application to retrieve and manipulate data without requiring technical details about the data, such as how it is formatted at source, or where it is physically located. To resolve differences in source and consumer formats and semantics, various abstraction and transformation techniques are used. This concept and software is a subset of data integration and is commonly used within business intelligence, service-oriented architecture data services, cloud computing, enterprise search, and master data management.

mongoDB error : aborting after fassert() failure

What to do when facing errors on mongoDB “aborting after fassert() failure” I like errors, in mongoDB this is the first error I faced and luckily many times. This error i faced during restoring name-space on local and restarting db system. I am still searching the exact root cause of this issue but i am able to resolve the current problem through below steps. Remove all relevant namespace files from data-file route path.. Now repair mongo instance using mongod process. mongod --repair ////////// execute command from bin folder path  Then start server using mongd process, if started server successfully then .. mongod  ////////// execute command from bin folder path Restore last backups as normal process. Now check database by connecting mongo shell. Thanks for reading,  Please comment your experience if you faced and also share knowledge if you have better steps to resolve...  

SQL71562: external references are not supported when creating a package from this platform

He was using “Deploy Database to SQL Azure” option from SSMS Tool-Task option. After connecting to SQL Azure portal when operation started to deployment below errors occurs. Validation of the schema model for data package failed. Error SQL71562: Error validating element has an unresolved refrence to object xx.dbo.xxxx external refrences are not supported when creating a package from this platform . Reason: The reason of the this error was; some functions of project was dependent on master database and only single database was being deploy to SQL Azure. DACFx must block Export when object definitions (views, procedures, etc.) contain external references, as Azure SQL Database does not allow cross-database external references So, this error was coming. Solution : I suggested him to create those function to locally
