Will we ever see a world where there are no longer gasoline-fueled cars on the road? Of course!  Why spend money on gas and pollute the planet when you can save mother earth and spend less?

Will we ever see a world where users won’t care which database system their data came from, but instead query as quickly as doing a browser search over the internet? Of course!  Why spend time and money moving data to a single platform to have a single version of the truth when the truth can reside across many data sources?  Ironically, users with no technical background can now join data across platforms thousands of times faster than today’s best data scientists. Virtualization is the ability to join data no matter where it resides without any technical expertise, and it is as inevitable in data as electricity is to cars!

The question of the day should be Yellowbrick or Snowflake. As the great playwright William Shakespeare once penned, “To be or not to be, that is the question?” If Shakespeare were alive today, the real question would be, “To be or not to be competitive.”
