Data integration is becoming increasingly challenging for enterprises. While cloud solutions are opening up new opportunities and efficiencies across all segments of the enterprise, integrating data across cloud applications, and between cloud and on-premise applications, must become a priority for enterprises if they hope to leverage the efficiencies of cloud and keep data secure.
Many enterprises are beginning to realize the importance of onboarding information management initiatives. According to Gartner, “Beginning in 2014, markets aligned to big data and other information management initiatives, such as enterprise content management, data integration tools, and data quality tools will begin to see increased levels of investment.”*
Although complexity continues to evolve around data management and integration, at Liaison, we’re committed to investing in the ongoing development of our solutions and services so that they remain flexible and scalable to the evolving demands of our customers and partners. To that end, we recently made a number of upgrades to our flagship data management and integration tool, Contivo. For instance, we added support for JSON documents and enhanced support for UTF-8 and Asian flat file formats.
Complexity and simplicity go hand in hand in data integration and data management. Using data in new ways (much of the reason for doing data integration and management) can mean working with a bewildering variety of data and data formats. Being able to make that simple is much of the reason for using tools in the first place. We are proud that we’ve made many difficult things simple.
