A number of newly mature trends are making cloud-based data integration platforms, technologies, and user best practices more relevant than ever.
Today, the cloud is a well-established platform and data from the Internet coexists with enterprise data. Many organizations are using multiple cloud-based systems, and users are demanding self-service access to data. Enterprises need to address these trends if they want to leverage their data for organizational advantage.
The problem holding them back is change management; CIOs, CDOs, and architects know they need to move some of their data operations to the cloud, but they fear the risks, cost, and danger of disrupting daily business. Users facing these changes need a primer on cloud data integration to get them started.
This TDWI Checklist Report is that primer. It offers recommendations about how to conceptualize cloud data integration, what capabilities to look for, and how to align cloud data integration efforts with business goals and requirements.
