Sanjay ShirudeEvent Description: For at least two decades, integration has been one of the most powerful approaches to leveraging the value of existing IT assets. By all indications, integration will become even more important in the near future, both for internal and customer-facing processes. Gartner, for example, predicts that spending on integration will increase 33 percent from 2013 to 2016. Not only will the new integration be expected to handle new and unfamiliar data types, it will also be expected to deliver business results in real or near real time. Conventional approaches to integration such as batch-processed ETL will continue to be important, but they will need to be augmented by new technology that can successfully meet these real time demands. This presentation will discuss the new IT landscape as it relates to the new integration, and argue that the need for a comprehensive integration strategy has never been more urgent. This strategy must not only take new data types into account, but also address the more fundamental issue of agility – because whatever the integration needs of an enterprise may be at the moment, they are certain to change rapidly.
