  • Hola Diego,

    muchas gracias por tu pregunta.

    Para poder contestarte adecuadamente necesitamos entender el escenario y más concretamente saber qué queremos conectar. La familía de productos IBM Infosphere MDM nos permiten diferentes opciones y en función de qué tipo de aplicaciones queremos conectar y donde residen (cloud, dominio) las recomendaciones pueden ser muy variadas. Por ejemplo en la familia de productos Websphere disponemos de Cast Iron y Message Broker que nos pueden ayudar a 'conectar' cualquier aplicación con MDM, donde el significado de 'conectar' es integrar.

    Te invito a conversarlo con mi compañera Diana Segura (+57 1 628 2828) que se encuentra en el país donde estás ubicado.
