Data integration is essential for unlocking the value of an organization's data assets. By collecting and interpreting multiple data sets, data integration eliminates information silos, democratizing data access and providing a consistent view to business users. This in turn helps create agile, integrated data environments that enable companies to respond faster to change, better leverage new technologies, and develop innovative products and services.
Data integration software allows organizations to synchronize data across applications and data platforms and provide users with comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-date information for business intelligence and analytics. Employees get access to the information they need to make intelligent decisions based on timely data from a variety of sources.
Companies use data replication and data integration tools to migrate data from legacy systems to new applications or from one database to another—to migrate data from SQL Server to Oracle for example—or to consolidate systems during mergers and acquisitions. Complex data integration involves multiple transformations of data to accommodate varying data models and data formats.
A common example of data integration is the aggregation of data from multiple source systems in a data warehouse or data mart. An ETL tool set is used to extract, transform and load data to a centralized repository that can be used for analytical applications and user queries.
