Organizations struggle to achieve informed decision making, smarter customer engagement, and agile and efficient operations without good data integration. There has never been as much pressure on data integration as there is today with users demanding faster data flows, better performance, and access to big and increasingly diverse data. A forward-thinking data integration strategy can be the linchpin to business success.
Data integration technology is critical to how fast businesses can react to customers and market needs. On-premises systems remain important, but many organizations are shifting the focus of data integration to deliver data quickly to cloud platforms from both new data sources and legacy systems. Organizations are innovating by deploying automated data pipelines, real-time data streaming, and data “lakehouses” that integrate cloud data warehouses and data lakes. These innovations are delivering agility to the business.
Join this TDWI Webinar to learn about global data integration trends in 2021. We will discuss fresh research into experiences of real-world organizations to uncover their most challenging issues and offer analysis of important trends in data integration. We will outline best practices and strategies for improving data integration in 2021 and beyond.
Topics we will discuss include:
- Key drivers in moving to a cloud data integration strategy and top tips to manage the journey
- Evaluating whether your organization needs a single data lakehouse architecture that unifies the cloud data warehouse and data lake
- The most difficult sources to integrate and strategies for adding new data in less time
- Which BI and analytics workloads need faster data refresh rates and how to make it happen
- Technology and business trends that impact data integration plans for 2021 and beyond
