Every part of every organization stores data on multiple databases. In many cases, the data is stored in the wrong way. This is because every department will store its own data or even every person from every separate department will store their own data on their personal computer.
This will prevent other people to use that data. And this will provide a huge data mess. To prevent this from happening your company needs to make use of data integration. Data integration is the combination of technical and business processes used to combine data from disparate sources into meaningful and valuable information.
Enterprises today establish data integration initiatives to analyze and act on their data more effectively, especially with the explosion of data, new cloud and big data technologies. Data integration is a must for modern businesses to improve strategic decision making and to increase their competitive edge.
Because of data integration, your organization will work a lot more efficient. There will no longer be data storage problems and it is also easier to work together with customers/clients and give them access to your data. Data integration helps your company grow in every way.
