What are Data Integration Tools?

In complex data centers, multiple systems often create large volumes of valuable data. However, this data must be aggregated before it can be properly analyzed. Data integration tools help solve this problem by providing a unified view of data gathered from across an enterprise’s systems. Products in this category follow the ETL process of obtaining, cleaning, and loading data into a data warehouse or similar database.

Data integration tools can process and unify data from a large variety of sources. Mainframes, spreadsheets, databases, and other applications are all potential sources of structured data. These tools can often process unstructured data as well, incorporating information from email, instant messaging applications, and web pages. De-duping and data sanitation features help make sure that data is ready for analysis. Vendors often include job-creation tools to standardize and streamline repeated data operations.

When considering data integration tools, evaluate your expected user base. Some tools may have more robust visual interfaces, while others may lean more heavily on a code-based interface. You should also make sure that the solution is capable of accessing every data source you want to integrate. If your chosen tool doesn’t interact well with an important data source, analysis on the collected data might be much more difficult.

Top Rated Criteria
