Avoiding the Integration Tar Pit – Agile Integration for fast results

Report Author(s): David Norfolk


Almost all projects involve data integration these days, because nearly
every IT project involves multiple applications and databases. If you
don’t plan and design the data integration parts of your projects, you are
destined for a data integration tar pit, with a tangled mess of point-topoint
integrations of exponentially increasing complexity.

This paper is addressed to two classes of readers: the IT manager below
CIO level, responsible for budgets, meeting deadlines and satisfying
internal customers with many needs and demands; and the software
applications vendor, who has to deliver into almost any environment and
integrate with their customers’ existing systems.
