Data integration refers to an industry category and a technology designed to make it easy for you to combine different sources of data together to produce useful business information. Those sources may include legacy mainframe databases, modern relational databases, desktop applications, social media comments, blog postings, machine sensor data and so on.

But modern data integration tools shouldn’t be limited to today’s data sources because the best of these tools are also flexible enough to encompass whatever new technology becomes the hot item tomorrow.
