Data integration involves combining data from several disparate sources, which are stored using various technologies and provide a unified view of the data.
Data integration becomes increasingly important in cases of merging systems of two companies or consolidating applications within one company to provide a unified view of the company’s data assets. The later initiative is often called a data warehouse.
The good news is your organization has data and applications in several clouds. The bad news is very little of it is integrated. We know what questions companies should be asked when putting a cloud application integration strategy in place like ‘What are you not going to move to the cloud?’ and ‘Where will most of the future development take place?’
We can recommend the set of Business Intelligence (BI) tools supporting the transformation of raw data into useful information which can support decision making. Business Intelligence provides reporting functionality, tools for identifying data clusters, support for data mining techniques, business performance management and predictive analysis.
