The general industry expectation is that new “big data” technologies will coexist with existing data structures in most organizations. For example, big data analytics applications will continue to draw heavily upon transactional and operational data stored in relational databases, as well as legacy hierarchical databases and file systems.
Growing demands for information, application migration and integration, compliance mandates and adoption of organizational strategies and governance models have increased and as a result, data integration has moved to the forefront of enterprise IT agendas.
Data integration is the combination of technical and business processes used to combine data from disparate sources into meaningful and valuable information. A complete data integration solution delivers trusted data from a variety of sources.
