Consolidate Your Data Integration
Business inertia, over time, results in a collection of varied data integration technologies within a business. Meanwhile, as cloud, big data, and new secure protocols and standards proliferate, business finds itself redundantly supporting numerous data integration technologies as well as separately managing the underlying security, control, and governance. This paper discusses strategies and tactics to consolidate disparate integration technologies.
A business of any size has a revolving door of activity. Employees. Customers. Inventory. Suppliers. Shippers. Contract workers. Orders. Payroll. Invoicing. Inbound. Outbound. In today’s information age, the speed and reliability at which an organization can move all of the critical data that drives the business is directly correlated to the firm’s success. Moving the data to support employee and customer onboarding, order processing, benefits management, payroll, inventory management, data analytics, asset tracking, logistics, supply chain operations, and just about every other aspect of conducting business — large and small — is critical to keep business running.
Simply put, you can’t keep the business moving unless you can keep the data moving — both within the business and beyond, and to and from customers, suppliers, and partners.
