It seems to me that SSAS tabular models have some similar features when compared to data virtualization software, but the following cites "the combination of BizTalk, SQL Server Integration Services, Visual Studio, and SQL Server " as a Data Virtualization equivalent Microsoft.

Where do we go if we want the true Data Virtualization features? ....outside of Microsoft?

..excerpt from the above:

Vendors

The Forrester wave, lists the following vendors, in their respective rankings:

1. Informatica
2. IBM
3. Composite Software
4. Denodo Technologies
5. SAP
6. Microsoft
7. Stone Bond Technologies
8. Red Hat
9. Oracle

It is clear that Informatica leads the pack, from a pure product perspective, by having Distributed Access, Data Services Implementation, Data Services Quality and Transformation, obtain a very high score.


It is slightly mind-boggling why Microsoft has achieved such a high-ranking in this space. They provide BizTalk, SQL Server Integration Services, and Visual Studio as their Data Virtualisation tool set. Forresters comment on it as follows: “Although Microsoft does not actively market a productized data virtualization solution, customers often find that the combination of BizTalk, SQL Server Integration Services, Visual Studio, and SQL Server delivers a powerful option to create a data services layer, especially when using the Microsoft platform.“

Data virtualization. It's the first time I hear that term. I know data visualization, but SSIS is certainly no visualization tool.

If it's about data integration, SSIS is really a good tool and can work with a lot of environments (it is also used in combination with other vendors). Visual Studio is just a development environment, it doesn't belong in the list.

Not sure if you were looking for other options? (Your post caught my eye - that msft had a data virtualization location)

I'm not affiliated with them, however I did see a presentation by them.

I thought it was interesting, and they seem to feel they are one of the early pioneers of it.

You should contact them for a free demo for your company.

..some places to get started. I attended a webinar demo by 7. Stone Bond Technologies, which was the reason that I am asking what Microsoft has to offer.

Here is a blog:

..another blog, the cites the "The Forrester Wave: Data Virtualization, Q1 2012" report and includes a link to it.
