5 Laws of Cloud Integration

Shawn Rogers (keeper of the Twitter BI Google Spreadsheet) tweeted 5 laws of data integration in the cloud today that I thought were worth sharing:

  1. Data is widely distributed
  2. Everything happens fast
  3. Control is distributed
  4. Connectivity becomes more challenging
  5. Data volumes increase at explosive rate

I missed the context, as the tweets came from the #integrationsummit conference, but I don’t really see these as laws; they’re more like general statements. Here’s my counter:

  1. Data from Cloud applications must be integrated with other systems to deliver maximum value.
  2. Cloud integration services must be easy to use for non-technical users.
  3. Cloud integration services must provide strong IT governance and control.
  4. Cloud integration services must provide broad end point support (apps, databases, files, etc.  – both on-premises and cloud).
  5. Cloud integration services must be able to handle large data volumes.
