Data Integration

Data Integration is the problem of combining data residing at different sources and providing the user with a unified view of these data. This important problem emerges in a variety of situations both commercial (when two similar companies need to merge their databases) and scientific. Data integration appears with increasing frequency as the volume and the need to share existing data increases.

Nearly all companies realize that the way to gain a competitive advantage is to obtain better data, interpret them quickly, and distribute them in easier-to-use formats. However, there are many obstacles to the effective use of data and few companies surmount them all-a fact that results in a lot of unused corporate data. How are companies using information to beat their rivals and create a more level playing field? This report from the Economist Intelligence Unit examines how their practices are evolving and offers examples of data use at some highly successful companies.

The list of initiatives that are data-enabled-indeed, data-intensive-vary from company to company, from industry to industry. But the common denominator is an increasing awareness that these and other programs can't succeed without clean, meaningful, and available information. In this white paper, Baseline Consulting's Jill Dyché discusses how the data conversation is changing from philosophical questioning to hard-core tactics, from "What do we need?" to "Where do we start?" It covers the most common reasons for data governance failure, as well as the components of data governance that will inform the right strategy and give companies a means of determining where and how to begin their data governance journeys.
