As organizations collect and store more information, data integration is becoming increasingly problematic. Nearly 70 percent of respondents to a recent global survey of IT professional and business users called data integration a high or very high inhibitor of new-application implementation. Along with industry-expert interviews, the survey was used as the basis of a new report from The Data Warehousing Institute(TDWI) entitled, Data Integration: Using ETL, EAI, and EII Tools to Create an Integrated Enterprise. The report evaluates the recent evolution of data integration tools and methodologies, from both a data warehousing perspective and an enterprise-wide strategy standpoint. The survey also found that the top three data integration issues faced by corporations are: data quality and security, lack of a business case and inadequate funding, and a poor data integration infrastructure. It also found that large organizations are evolving toward enterprise-wide data integration architecture, whereas midsize companies tend to focus on data integration from a sales and business intelligence (BI) viewpoint, evaluating data integration products on their ability to fit in with the company’s existing applications and infrastructure
Obstacles to Success
What’s holding companies back? There are several key issues:
Data quality and security. Even today, over 75% of companies don’t take the time to understand what data quality and security means to their company and their customers. Traditional methods and alternatives are simply too expensive and complicated for most companies.
Lack of business case definition. Midsized and large companies cite “lack of collaboration between sales and finance” as their biggest obstacle when planning to create an integrated environment. They want to foster more dialogue and communication—but the current approach clearly isn’t working.
Poor data integration infrastructure. Many sales and financial managers would like to overhaul their existing approaches and adopt “Best Practices”; however, they are not sure where to start. Ideally, they would like a “map” for improving their processes, and would like to know what has been successful for others—but their peers are in similar situations.
