This e-book focuses on building and executing a data integration and lifecycle management strategy.

However, even if only a small percentage of data is flowing in from cloudbased sources, IT does need a plan for data integration and security. IT must help the organization ensure it owns the information created from all data and processing, no matter where that information is located. The hybrid infrastructure and decentralized computing are means to the ultimate end of creating strategic information assets.
