The number of data types and sources is increasing almost daily anymore, which poses serious challenges for analytics and discovery. With many of these data sets in the Cloud, analysts are realizing that merging such public resources with internal information assets can be quite problematic. Solutions like virtualization and federation can get the job done, but another option is to employ a database that can natively connect to all these external sources.
