How To Become Your Organization’s Data Integration Hero On Fire – CDC Streaming 101

In 1985, British singer, John Parr rose to fame by writing and singing the theme song “St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)” for its namesake coming-of-age ’80s movie, St. Elmo’s Fire. Back then, when John wrote the lyrics “You’re just a prisoner, and you're tryin' to break free,” I know he wasn’t thinking of data but ironically that is exactly what is happening with your data today. Breaking it free through efficient data delivery is still very much a big challenge in this digital age.

  • Is your data locked up inside legacy systems and spread across multiple disparate sources, which are hard to get at without impacting your important production systems and slowing down critical performance?
  • Aren't you tired of using traditional ETL methods and tools taking up hundreds – if not thousands— of your working hours in brittle processes and countless lines of manual scripting?
  • Do you find yourself turning away from long, laborious load times in a vain attempt at keeping the data fresh from sources that you know can add even more valuable insights for the business, but you just don't have the automation or governance in place to deal with?

If this sounds all too similar, but you don’t know where to start, then thankfully all is not lost – there is a solution. Just like when Parr sings, he’s “gonna be your man in motion,” you, too, can get your data in motion and start taking advantage of near real-time data streams by creating automated data pipelines, saving valuable time with Qlik Data Integration.

It’s time to shake off that digital dust that's been gathering on your data and get it back in motion so you can do so much more than just store it. No longer will your business just have to analyze data only occasionally because it takes too long and is just too hard to wrangle into a business-ready state.

Find out how you can automate the end-to-end movement of data – in real time – from multiple sources to multiple targets with Qlik’s Change Data Capture technology.
