5 Data Integration Technology Trends to Look For in 2018

2018 will be another banner year for the data integration market, which seemed evolving in 2017 and similar new things are being expected in the future. Smart technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Chatbots, Sensors, Machine Learning, Augmented Analytics, etc. will be generating overwhelming amounts of data. Enterprises focusing on “internet of value” will require cadence for processing this colossal amount of data. And integration will be the lynchpin for harnessing more value out of the data and navigating tenaciously through the hybrid IT issues.

As an industry participant, we will cover top integration trends that will give you an edge in the future:

Hybrid IT Integration: There is a truism that every company today envisions to become a cloud-first enterprise for supporting the digital initiatives. Cloud adoption will be on the radar of both new entrants and technological behemoths. Organizations adopting cloud technologies, or modernizing legacy applications will face challenges coming from the technology integration side. In such scenarios, functionalities for hybrid IT integration will support the digital initiatives. Organizations with over 6000 and 7000 legacy systems can create an intelligent mesh for integrating them with cloud-based platforms and adapting new landscape seamlessly.

Business Process Integration: In the good old days, only employees were generating data. However, in the present scenario, smart technologies like sensors, gadgets, machines, etc. involved in different processes are also generating data. The outgrowth of differentiated architectures and underlying data formats will prevent organizations from bringing data from partner networks. Data integration vendors will improve capabilities to integrate processes and allow them to orchestrate. Connecting the individual pieces of technologies can help organizations in setting up a future-ready architecture. With this unique advantage, companies can move technologies at the speed of business and respond faster to changes.

Centralized Data Management Architecture: A centralized data integration platform will become mission-critical for organizations. A unified architecture will be required for combining data warehouses, data lakes and reducing errors. Integration vendors will focus on incorporating low-latency and cost efficiency features for streaming data. The integration tools will leverage a single storage backend with the advantage of multiple storage systems. Users can avoid data duplication and data consistency by eliminating multiple sources of truth and consistency issues.

Master Data Management: How to improve data management and drive down integration cost? This is a million dollar question which baffles application leaders and data scientists. To address these needs, a next-generation data tools will carry incredible functionalities for master data management. With a few clicks,  business users will be able to manage colliding data formats and several policies & protocols associated with them. Business users will get seamless access to accurate data, that will support business decisions in real time.

Secure Data Bridge: New data protection laws like General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will push the IT security arrangements in an organization to the limits. And data integration vendors will be forced to infuse more security arrangement into the solution they are offering. Functionalities like execution engine for API layering will be on the fly for enabling a secured pathway for data exchange. The secure engine will also break the barriers associated with file size and file volume.

Organizations should ensure that the integration solution they are purchasing end-to-end encrypted environment for secure data interchange with partners. An enterprise-class integration solution should factor these trends into its framework and help organizations in navigating tenaciously through obstacles. Without these functionalities, the competitors will take lead and rob your business. I would encourage you to stop, think and discuss these trends before investing in a data integration technology.
