Emerging technologies like Enterprise Information Integration (EII) provide new capabilities for solving business intelligence and reporting challenges. EII is generally complementary to integration technologies such as ETL and EAI, yet companies are still unclear where the features of one technology end and those of the other begin. What is each technology designed to do? When is it better to use one versus the other? When is it best to use them together?

The Webinar will be led by Dr. Claudia Imhoff, President and Founder of Intelligent Solutions and an internationally recognized expert in Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing and ETL technology. Claudia will be joined by Jim Green, founder and CTO of EAI provider webMethods (formerly Active Software) and current CEO of EII leader Composite Software. Claudia and Jim will clearly outline the differences between EII, ETL and EAI. They will present scenarios on when it is ideal to use one technology versus the other, and how they can be combined.

By attending this Webinar, you will learn:

  • The current integration landscape and differences between each technology
  • When to use which technology and when to combine them
  • Case studies of real-world business scenarios


All webinar attendees will receive a free copy of the white paper Enterprise Information Integration Supercharges the Data Warehouse by Composite Software.
