Many companies are focusing on their enterprise architectures to create efficiencies in how they approach IT initiatives. Much of this effort is targeted at standardizing IT processes and identifying repeatable design patterns that can be applied consistently across projects. According to a recent Forrester Research survey, 50 percent of respondents described design patterns as important to their organizations. As companies adopt these techniques to optimize integration competency, often there are questions about where data integration technology fits into these patterns.

Attendees of this webcast will learn the following:

  • Some of the approaches and trends enterprise architects are using to achieve integration competency

  • How service-oriented architecture can be applied to allow EAI, ETL, and EII to be used together to solve business problems

  • How to create an Integration Center of Excellence that encourages consistent best practices and reuse across integration projects

  • How to create information services that ensure consistency and unanimity in your enterprise data architecture

  • How data integration can be used to provide significant leverage across multiple design patterns
