Enterprises cannot expect to fully benefit from the move to a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) unless they are also working towards a complementary data integration approach. Streamlined access to enterprise data assets is a pillar of the service-oriented model and a service-oriented approach to data integration is needed for enterprises to realize the full potential of their SOA strategy.
The research note explores:
- An overview of data integration and key benefits.
- Data integration as a fundamental SOA component.
- Potential challenges of service-oriented data integration.
Understand and make plans to address essential data integration elements in order to maximize SOA benefits and avoid potential project blunder.
