Most companies have to implement a combination of integration solutions at one time or another. There are resources for application managers heading integration initiatives to use. This helps them in the research process to determine which category of solution is most likely to offer the features and capabilities needed to execute a successful integration strategy. One such resource is the “Taxonomy, Definitions and Vendor Landscape for Integration Solutions, 2014” report by Gartner.

This pricey but comprehensive insight into the process covers everything from analysis to the clouds to multi-enterprise integration. Gartner is well known as an information technology research and advisory company. They pride themselves on working with every client to research, analyze, and interpret the business of information technology within the context of their individual role.

This isn’t the only resource available, but one that is worth the time to look into as you approach your data integration projects.
