Data integration remains a major challenge for corporations, according to a recent report by The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI)
The report evaluates the progress of data integration strategies and the IT challenges associated with implementation. The study - which surveyed IT and business users across multiple industries - reports that nearly 70% of respondents identified data integration as a high inhibitor of new-application implementation.
Another Recent DMReview Article cited "ETL is part of the problem, not the solution! " and "Neglected ETL meta data management often magnify maintainability problems to the point where the entire system is pronounced throw away, a costly mistake."
