When addressing data integration challenges at the application tier, many people turn to either traditional approaches such as EAI, or newer technologies such as ESB, within the SOA movement. But those who do often find themselves in hot water: Data issues are very complex -- and typically greatly underestimated -- and EAI and ESB technologies just aren't up to the task. Successful data integration requires finding the right tool for the job.
So, how do you ensure data integration success? In this Webinar David Linthicum will take the mystery out of data integration, providing his recommendations for the best implementation approaches and technologies. David will also provide a method for understanding your own data integration requirements, review existing solution patterns, and discuss the technology that is available today to make sure you can get your job done.
We will discuss:
- Emerging Data Integration Patterns
- Limitations of Existing Data Integration Approaches
- Approaching SOA with "A"rchitecture
- Informaticaï¿½s Data Services
- Plan of Action
