Data integration is the combination of technical and business processes used to combine data from disparate sources into meaningful and valuable information. A complete data integration solution delivers trusted data from various sources to support a business-ready data pipeline for DataOps.
Data integration solutions from IBM, including data integration on IBM Cloud Pak® for Data, offer scalable, multicloud solutions for organizations to accelerate their journey to AI. Bulk data integration or data transformation allows you to extract large volumes of data, transform it in any style and load (ETL) it to enterprise data warehouse or cloud sources. IBM data integration products can also be used stand-alone or as managed services on IBM Cloud®.
Additional data integration delivery styles include:
- Data replication: delivering complementary features, such as near-real time data synchronization or distribution utilizing low-impact, log-based data capture
- Data virtualization: abstracting data access from multiple sources by creating a virtual view for business users who need to access and query data on demand
