To derive the most value from their data, firms today must eliminate information silos and develop integrated data environments that allow them to gain timely insights into their customers and their business. With the right data integration solution, today's firms can more easily and efficiently combine and analyze many different types of data to identify new opportunities and stay agile and competitive in a fast-changing marketplace.

A data integration solution can help you bring together disparate forms of data—whether structured transactional data or unstructured data from sources like social media or connected devices—in order to consolidate them in a single platform purpose-built for reporting and analytics.

Features and Capabilities to Consider When Purchasing a Data Integration Solution

The primary purpose of a data integration solution should be to break down barriers: to rid your organization of the information silos that are preventing you from gaining the most value from your data. For this purpose, a data integration solution should provide you with connectors that seamlessly support the native APIs of the applications, legacy systems, data warehouses, and different types of databases in use at your organization. It should be able to handle the specific data formats of your applications and databases and allow you to deliver your data to MPP databases, Hadoop distributions, and other advanced analytics platforms.

A data integration solution should also make your job easier. Automated data integration tools streamline and accelerate integration workflows, replacing time-consuming, error-prone manual coding with drag-and-drop data mapping and replication design. Graphical user interfaces and web-based monitoring dashboards simplify the process of creating and managing data pipelines, and foster collaboration.

In order to support today's fast-paced business environments and rapidly expanding data stores, a data integration solution should offer you low-latency, non-invasive replication capabilities and massive scalability: namely, non-intrusive change data capture (CDC) capabilities to enable real-time data integration and a highly-scalable data ingestion framework capable of processing high-volume data.
