Director of Engineering – Data Integration
Infrastructure Platform Group, Sybase
Abstract Many companies today seek optimized ways to access structured and unstructured data in their enterprises, without extensive programming or costly database consolidation. Virtual databases with links to distributed heterogeneous sources enable applications to consistently access and combine data in new ways. Sybase solves this problem while supporting the optimized query capabilities and scalability of an enterprise class relational database, via ASE, Enterprise Connect Data Access, Enhanced Full Text Search, and ASE Web Services. Leverage SQL and XML standards to make your data work for you in your enterprise.
“ Enterprise information integration (EII) is seeing a new surge of interest in 2003, largely because its virtual and/or federated approach to data integration has potential benefits.
Compared to other data integration technologies, solutions based on a vendor’s EII tool tend to be quick to deploy, inexpensive in terms of licensing and very flexible since they’re based on a metadata-based view of enterprise data.
In addition, EII relies on distributed queries to effect data integration in near real-time, thus delivering fresher data than traditional batch methods.
Many companies are evaluating vendors’ EII products in 2003, so 2004 should see an upsurge in EII implementations.”
