Live Tweetporting from #GartnerMDM: Data Integration Foundation

Next in the series of live tweetports from Gartner Master Data Management Summit in Texas, I attended Ted Friedman’s presentation: Data Integration Technology and Architecture: Infrastructure for Efficient and Effective Master Data Delivery. As expected, a great summary of what’s happening on the market and where it’s going.

  • Full room for @ted_friedman's session on #DataIntegration: foundational block for #MDM. #GartnerMDM
  • As soon as we started to span multiple systems each with its own data, we created a #DataIntegration challenge. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • One third of CEOs have no clue which type of data will be disruptive for their industry in next 5 years. Scary. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • A simple definition of #DataIntegration: enable data structures designed independently to be leveraged together @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • #DataIntegration must go beyond just moving the package without controlling what's inside. Not FedEx! @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • If you are delivering garbage to business apps, what is the point? #DataQuality #DataIntegration. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • #DataIntegration styles still primarily bulk/batch but low latency, message-oriented, federation picking up. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • Virtualized data removes burden of understanding data structure from the consumer of data. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • How to collect master data from all the systems? How do I make it available to downstream apps? A: #DataIntegration. #GartnerMDM
  • Data integration hub reduces complexity of architecture, removes need for point to point. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • RT ‏@prussom: It's so true: "Data integration practices require data governance, just like master data." - @Ted_Friedman @Gartner_inc. #gartnermdm #TDWI
  • Data virtualization scenarios include #LDW, data access services/#SOA, registry style #MDM. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM.
  • #DataIntegration problem space is multi-dimensional: latency, granularity, physicality. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • If more than 3D, would add structure, geography as other dimensions of #DataIntegration space. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • #DataIntegration is definitely part of #iPaaS. It's not only an app integration discipline. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • #Cloud based #DataIntegration is very early day. Almost all use cases are SFDC sync. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • #DataIntegration in #HypeCycle: some good stuff there. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • #OpenSource #DataIntegration quickly moving through the trough, soon to plateau. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • Most vendors who have combined #DataIntegration & #DataQuality have disjointed tools, sliding in trough. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • #Cloud #DataIntegration still going up toward peak of inflated expectations. @ted_friedman at #GartnerMDM
  • RT ‏@1stSanFrancisco: Ted Friedman at #GartnerMDM - Synergies between application and data integration technologies help further #MDM.
  • Common is the name of the game here. Metadata, environment, tech... Unified integration platform. #GartnerMDM
