4.3 Information integration
As you prepare for near-realtime BI, you will need to change many of your
business processes and your approach to processing the data. In most
companies much of the data resides in many heterogeneous data sources. This
data is currently captured by many different approaches. What is needed is a
standardized, common approach to access and capture these different sources
of data. And, one that minimizes the impact and knowledge requirements of your
application development staff. In addition, it should be one that enables you to
optimize that access to provide the performance you will need to satisfy the
current and growing data volumes that will be processed in near-realtime. IBM
has a solution, called the DB2 Information Integrator!
