Virtual Data Mart Overview

Virtual Data Marts are virtual (not physical) collections of your data objects, including raw data, pipelines and views, from any combination of differing data sources (file, database, stream). This framework allows for dynamic data provisioning, so that as your data changes its makeup or location, there is minimal interference for downstream analytical integrations. VDMs can be reused across any number of users and roles.
