Surveys show a growing demand for more up-to-date data in our BI environments. To meet these needs requires adjusting our approach to data integration, moving away from a strict reliance on nightly batch-style ETL. The opposite end of the spectrum – application integration and EAI technologies – doesn’t fit well in the BI environment. We need to know what methods and technologies are available for capturing, processing and delivering near real-time data, and how it will affect the target environment. Techniques such as data virtualization, changed data capture, complex event processing among others can help supply real time data for BI.
