There are two technological advances that are influencing significant changes in the way we think about data integration: the increasing consumption of external streaming data and the reliance on cloud computing as an acceptable alternative to on-premises computing. The enlightened perception of using the Internet as a broad platform for distribution of data and computing means that conventional approaches to data exchange and ingestion are yielding to more sophisticated approaches to data integration that, paradoxically, rely on a simplified development architecture.
In this Webinar, we survey the historical transition from “heavyweight” approaches to data exchange through remote procedure call and service-oriented architecture, as well as conventional approaches to data integration. We will discuss how the impacts of cloud-based and networked computing have created a need for cloud-based data integration services, in addition to how they have motivated an evolution toward a microservices-based architecture for implementation.
Attendees will learn about:
- Different modes of data integration approaches
- The adoption of cloud computing as a data integration platform
- Microservices basics
- Use cases and examples of microservices-based data integration
