In the current landscape of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning innovation, the imperative to aggregate data from varied sources and derive real-time insights is more pronounced than ever. This necessity gives rise to a Multi-Engine Data Virtualization Framework, a novel approach designed to refine data virtualization and management strategies. Distinct from conventional data virtualization systems, which often falter in processing complex and voluminous data, this innovative framework aims to capitalize on the diverse strengths of various data platforms, thereby elevating efficiency and efficacy in data virtualization. The framework effectively tackles prevalent data management and access obstacles by facilitating the seamless amalgamation of federated queries with multiple data engines. It delves into advanced caching databases, Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) engines, and vector databases to support real-time big data analytics and machine learning endeavors. The necessity of this framework underscores the inadequacies of current data virtualization solutions in fulfilling the multifaceted demands of contemporary data management, which include costeffective caching, vector embeddings for machine learning, and the distributed processing of large data volumes. The paper also emphasizes future research avenues such as evaluating performance, optimizing queries adaptively, augmenting caching strategies, ensuring scalability and fault tolerance, addressing security and privacy, and incorporating emerging technologies. This research marks a pivotal advancement towards attaining unparalleled data management efficiency and flexibility, poised to transform organizational practices in managing, accessing, and leveraging data for insights.
