Automated Data Integration

Introduction to Automated Data Integration

Automated data integration eliminates the need for time-consuming, error-prone manual data integration processes and enables organizations to more efficiently combine, manage, and obtain insight from their data assets. Two trends have encouraged firms to leverage automated tools. First, rapid adoption of technologies like cloud computing and connected devices in enterprise environments has resulted in complex and sprawling IT infrastructures which are increasingly difficult to manage. Second, self-service analytics and BI require the efficient processing and analysis of large volumes of data.

The benefits of automated data integration: Simplicity and efficiency

By automating the tedious, repetitive processes and tasks associated with ingesting, replicating, and synchronizing data across the enterprise, data integration software allows you to improve operational efficiency while reducing IT and development costs. Automated data integration tools can help boost developer productivity and accelerate time-to-value for BI projects. Instead of writing code or configuring complex data preparation tools, your teams can spend more time analyzing your data and generating the insights that drive innovation.

Automated data integration tools are designed to streamline and simplify the creation and management of complex integrations by providing you with visual design environments, user-friendly monitoring consoles, built-in connectors supporting a variety of data sources, and automated documentation generation. With the right tool, automated data integration may also foster collaboration among your developers, data analysts, and administrators, and even empower your business users to create their own basic mash-ups.
