Data integration combines both business and technical information from separate sources onto a unified platform, so it can be managed more effectively and made available to the right people at the right time. Ultimately, integration is critical for providing insight into business processes, and making it easier to manage and share big data. In this article we will be outlining some of the many advantages to integrating your data.
