Compassion International uses data virtualization software to help kids

Compassion International is using data virtualization software to provide services for needy children around the world.

Compassion International Inc., a Christian nonprofit group, is using data virtualization software to help it provide food, education and other services to children in need from around the globe.

SearchDataManagement recently got on the phone with Kenny Sargent, a technical lead at Compassion International, to find out how the organization is achieving success with data virtualization.

Sargent explained why the large charitable organization, which matches donors with needy children through a 1-on-1 sponsorship program, turned to data virtualization tools from Composite Software, a company recently acquired by networking giant Cisco Systems Inc.

Sargent also talked about some of the challenges associated with running a large nonprofit and how data virtualization is helping. Finally, Sargent had some sage advice for anyone considering a data virtualization initiative.
