In 1969 Edward Lorenz, the famed meteorologist and Chaos Theory proponent,
introduced the concept now known as the "Butterfly Effect" when he posed the
famous question: "Does the flap of a butterfly's wings in Brazil set off a

Yes, data virtualization is an agile data integration approach that provides
fast and direct access to new critical data that the business can trust and
consume. That's all well said and done. However, it's a loaded statement.
Each word, in fact, needs to be put under a microscope to make sure that
