Data Intelligence and Integration Software

Data Intelligence and Integration Software enables the access, blending, movement, and integrity of data among multiple structured and semistructured data sources in hybrid and multicloud environments. The purpose of data integration is to ensure the consistency of information where there is a logical overlap of the information contents of two or more discrete systems. The purpose of data intelligence is to help organizations get answers to the five Ws of data: who, what, when, where, and why, plus how to inform data workers with the knowledge required to be more effective and efficient in data activities and inform organizational processes of data enablement through governance. Technologies include, but are not limited to, data connectivity; extract, load, and transform (ELT); change data capture (CDC); format and semantic mediation; data federation and virtualization; data quality and profiling; master data management; metadata management; database security; information life-cycle management; and self-service data preparation and integration technologies. This service also provides intelligence about data exchange software markets, including business-to-business integration middleware and managed file transfer.
