Source: IDG (International Data Group)
This white paper explores the problems confronting IT organizations today as they seek to bring data together from disparate sources in order to achieve better information coherence, operational efficiency, and more effective overall governance. Specifically, this paper considers the problems posed by the complexity of enterprise data integration technology in terms of its configuration and maintenance. It looks at the utility of a grid approach in providing scalability and manageability for enterprise data integration and considers how the appliance approach, with its preconfigured hardware and software, can further reduce cost and risk for customers by taking the effort and guesswork out of setting up an enterprise data integration server.
