On-demand computing is apparently in demand, at least in the eyes of data integration specialist Informatica Corp. The Switzerland of data integration, as some have called it, just announced availability of its first on-demand offering, which is specifically designed to handle data from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) stalwart, Salesforce.com.
Don Tirsell, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Informatica, discusses "complex data," their recent acquisition of Itemfield, and how Itemfield's technology fits into Informatica's overall data integration platform.
David Loshin, consultant and author talked to Karen Hsu about Informatica's data quality, unstructured data and data governance solutions. Karen highlighted customers like Navteq and Humberside Police's innovative use of Informatica.
Virtually all organizations are realizing the importance of customer engagement. But in order to benefit, we must subscribe to the idea that consumers really can add value to our organization. And sometimes, that means removing the notion that we are the experts in exchange for the belief that we can learn a thing or two from our customers. The collective intelligence of the communities we serve is largely an untapped asset - a stream of valuable input that can help improve the decisions we make and shape the products we sell. This book explores the value of many - and the role that customer engagement will play in shaping the future of our businesses, our government, and our economy.

Unable to access the data you need? Lack of real-time information? Technology preventing fast execution of changing business strategy? These are just some of the clues you are probably spending more on integration than necessary.
In an IT landscape dominated by big data, mobility, social networking and cloud computing, integration will not only grow in importance, its very nature will change. This paper will discuss the 21st Century IT landscape as it relates to the new integration, and argue that the need for a comprehensive integration strategy has never been more urgent.
When a business event occurs, or a priority request for intelligence comes down the pipe, the modern enterprise has to be able to quickly deliver the right information to the right people. Unfortunately, many organizations continually struggle with accomplishing this task, as the size and complexity of their IT infrastructure rapidly expands. In this latest research, Aberdeen recommends actions for organizations currently involved in data integration, or contemplating the adoption of such practices.
The end-to-end information integration capabilities of IBM® InfoSphere® Information Server are designed to help organizations understand, cleanse, monitor, transform and deliver data—as well as collaborate to bridge the gap between business and IT.

Enterprises are increasingly expected to support Macs as corporateapproved devices. In order to be in compliance, it is imperative that all devices accessing sensitive corporate and customer data be fully secured and managed. MobileIron delivers a new model for authentication and identity to Macs and enables enterprises to unify Apple mobile and desktop operations using a common security and management platform. MobileIron’s layered security can be extended to not only corporate-owned Macs, but to employee-owned devices as well. And, IT organizations can bring Macs under management across the organization with unparalleled speed and at scale thanks to seamless integration with Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP) and Volume Purchase Program (VPP).
To meet the business imperative for enterprise integration and stay competitive, companies must manage the increasing variety, volume and velocity of new data pouring into their systems from an ever-expanding number of sources. They need to bring all their corporate data together, deliver it to end users as quickly as possible to maximize its value, and integrate it at a more granular level than ever before—focusing on the individual transaction level, rather than on general summary data.
As data volumes continue to explode, clients must take advantage of a fully scalable information integration architecture that supports any type of data integration technique such as extract, transfer and load (ETL), data replication or data virtualization.
In today’s competitive on-line world, the speed of change in customer behaviour is increasing. In addition, in industries such as retail banking, car insurance and to some extent retail, the Internet has become the dominant way in which customers interact with an organisation.
Yet in many data warehouses today, being able to analyse customer on-line behaviour is often not possible because the clickstream web log data needed to do this is missing. It is a key point because customer access to the web has made loyalty cheap.
