Our last webinar of this year- “UNLOCK EPIC SPEEDS: WebFOCUS MEETS TIBCO DV” was streamed live on 9th Dec 2021 at 3 pm EST. Like every time, our webinar was loaded with knowledge-packed interactive sessions led by experts from Amtex BI and TIBCO. Each session was centralized on how to efficiently access data and accelerate the speed of analytics using Data Virtualization. The pooled insights from 5 experts, delivered a clear portrait of how Data Virtualization lets you build and manage virtualized data views and services. Also, it helped attendees to discover how TIBCO Data Virtualization (TDV) delivers the data that your business needs, to accelerate revenue, reduce cost and risk, improve compliance, and consistency. The live chat and audience Q&A sessions are our all-time favorite parts since we get to know more about our clients and their concern zones.
