Two closely related trends are changing how data integration solutions are being designed and implemented. In a user-driven trend, business analysts and managers need to scout for greater leverage of data in support of business goals, as well as to avoid problems around data compliance, security, and privacy. In response, technical users are trying to give their businesses greater visibility into and collaboration around data integration, but are stymied by the silo’d and heavily technical nature of tools for data integration and related disciplines in data management.
A related vendor-driven trend seeks to supply users’ demands for collaboration and visibility, by providing a data integration platform that includes tools for multiple user types (both business and technical), metadata and other reusable artifacts shared across teams and projects, and process-driven functions for governance and compliance. This new generation of data integration platform enables collaborative development for teams of multiple data integration specialists, as well as coordination with other technical teams. And it gives business managers a new level of involvement, guidance, and control for data integration solutions.
