Why Data Integration Matters?

Some digital solutions stay with organizations for a long time. The cost of maintenance of all individual apps increases. This is the point when data integration solutions can improve the situation. In this material, we will not speak of different data integration strategies as well as of types of data integration. Instead, we will focus on its importance and benefits.

When is Data Integration Service Needed?

Many organizations make use of complex enterprise solutions for years. Each solution caters to certain business process areas. For instance, customer relationship management, enterprise resource planning, compliance solutions, and so on. The data integration between all information systems provides immediate benefits for the organization.

Nowadays, integration gained special importance for the GRC sphere. The decisions at the GRC level are critical for the organization’s future. The integration enables a better decision-making process by providing high-quality consolidated enterprise information. This idea now is moving the trends in the GRC software market. The GRC solution providers share the view on the integration features embedded in the design. It not surprising because integration is in the very nature of GRC.

Data Integration Challenges

A common method of integrating apps is manual point-to-point programming via APIs. It takes a lot of scrupulous work. With more software, the manual programming of thousands of interactions becomes hardly sustainable. The data integration time, consistency, and inevitable human errors are challenging.

This is why integrators employ solutions like data integration platforms. They provide automation of many manual operations. The data integration software consolidates information architecture and improves data integration control.

Data Integration Platforms

The use of data integration tools is a common practice now. The Infopulse accumulated vast expertise in numerous data integration projects. They include such platforms as ServiceNow, SAP, i-doit, MS Sharepoint and the like.

Here are a few examples of the Infopulse SCM data integration. These data integration solutions provide a single interface consolidating governance, risk and compliance processes with other operations.
