Data Integration

Traditional approaches to the process of combining disparate data types into a cohesive, unified, organized view involve manual coding and scripting. The need for Real-Time Business Intelligence and the ability to leverage a wider variety of data sources is driving companies to embrace new ways to achieve Data Integration, including Data Virtualization, Master Data Management, and Integration Automation.

The big data ecosystem has changed. No longer is it true that people just want to store massive quantities of data. Action is not only needed but must be taken to sustain the viability of an organization. While some say big data is dead, the concept isn't going anywhere. Instead, it is the notion of inaction on big data that is dead. In addition, the technologies that were built to store and process big data are not loved by the industry; they are merely tolerated and are often maligned. They have been difficult to put into production, to maintain, manage, and even find people with the skills to do all the work.

You've probably heard of ETL, or heard somebody talk about "ee-tee-elling" their data. It's a technology from the days of big iron for extracting data from many relational databases, transforming it to a corporate standard schema, and loading it into another unified relational database. That target database, the enterprise data warehouse (EDW), was intended to be a "single source of truth" for the enterprise. It included all the data that IT deemed fit (and available) for decision makers to use.

Remember when standing up a new database instance involved modeling the application using the underlying database to figure out what hardware (server, storage, etc.) was needed to support the new instance?

Think about the last time you filled out a paper form and contrast that with how many times you've filled out forms online. We live in an era where everything is digital. Forms are online, every click is captured, and even personal lives are documented on social media. The first wave of digitization led to more BI and better data-driven decisions. But, as we head into 2020, the focus has shifted from BI to operational analytics. Traditional BI was focused on enabling executives to make decisions using historical data. It was accelerated by technologies such as Hadoop, which were built for scale but could not deliver results.
