To ensure your organization is maximizing the value of business data, you need the right data integration solution. See how the leading ETL platforms stack up.
Today, enterprises produce enormous amounts of data in their daily operations. This includes transactional data generated from online and offline orders, machine data collected from equipment and sensors, and even social data created from likes and comments on social media platforms.
When all your data is organized and integrated, powerful analytics tools can generate business insights that translate into competitive advantages for your business. But without consolidated data, your data analytics will be inaccurate and incomplete.
Data integration solutions can automate data pipelines and generate a visual data flow for priceless insights into your organization. By uncovering strategic strengths and weaknesses, you can empower improvements in your business practices and processes. The result is more informed decisions, greater employee productivity, and better data management.

Data Integration is the process of combining data from multiple sources into a unified view for downstream applications or analytics. It allows data teams to centralize data for other uses to maximize query performance (from the consolidated data store) and minimizing the impact on back-end data sources.
Traditionally, data integration has involved three key processing components: extracting data from the sources, transforming it into a unified view, and loading the unified data into the destination. Together, these processes are referred to as ETL. As enterprises began to generate more data and expect more from it, data integration tools became more granular and user-friendly.
Data integration is often used for analytics purposes, sending the resulting data to analytical databases, data warehouses, or data marts, and organizing the data in specific analytic formats (star-schemas, multi-dimensional, etc.). But new purposes for data integration include enriching data within an application such as CRM and bringing together all the data need for a new application such as customer or supply chain 360.
