Complexity is a fact of life for specialist tasked with creating information integration infrastructures that enable strategic insight across a heterogeneous landscape. Compounding this challenge is the focus that enterprise application vendors have on their own operational data repositories as the primary source of data for their application's operations. Business users are requiring more relevant, more customizable access to information to improve their flexibility and responsiveness and IT organizations are under increasing pressure to find ways to simplify connectivity to a wide variety of data sources to consistently deliver this information on demand. But there seems to be hope. The advances of SOA and new techniques that leverage Information as a Service like Forrester Research's Information Fabric and IBM's and Dynamic Warehousing provide new approaches and technology to meet these more dynamic information integration needs.

This Webcast, "Uniting the Business: Simplifying Information Integration Connectivity" will delve into the details of Forrester Research's Information Fabric approach to enterprise information integration and how IBM Information Server can enable organizations to:

  • Speed project development time by simplifying how heterogeneous data sources are connected for a holistic view across the enterprise
  • Promote reuse of connectivity patterns to reduce costs and ease maintenance headaches
  • Eliminate slow, labor-intensive manual efforts to write programs to vendor-specific APIs or directly to RDBMS tables
  • Build a highly scalable information integration infrastructure that can meet your current and future information integration needs
