Smarter Data Integration in 7 Steps

While it doesn’t specifically reference cloud integration, there’s a great checklist with some nice graphics on the ITBusinessEdge site called, “Smart Integration in Seven Steps.” Originally written about in this blog post by Loraine Lawson, this is definitely something that deserves to be shared, printed and/or posted on your wall. The seven steps are:

  1. Put It on Your Calendar
  2. Break Down IT Silos
  3. Invite the Business to Participate, Too
  4. Create an Integration Portfolio
  5. Form an Integration Competency Center
  6. Invest in Standards
  7. Invest in a Data Integration Platform

And if you want to dive into some of these topics, you might want to check out the Informatica 9 World Tour events in a city near year. It’s a great chance to hear best-practices and network with others that are at various stages of implementing these steps.
