Integration in the Cloud War

Recently I wrote about the importance of data governance to cloud computing adoption. The post outlined some of the  IT and Business collaboration challenges when it comes to software as a service (SaaS) applications and made a few recommendations to corporate IT:

  1. Articulate the value of a Data Integration Competency Center to the line of business
  2. Consider Lean Integration
  3. Take baby steps towards Master Data Management

Today Michael Vizard picked up on the theme and took it to the next level: The War of the Clouds. The article talks about the emergence of Private Clouds as a way for IT to regain control vs. Public Clouds. But as Ron Papas, GM of Informatica Cloud notes:

“Unfortunately, time is not on the side of the internal IT department. IT integration now also is available as a service. Increasingly, IT–savvy business executives are turning to cloud computing services to not only run the applications, but also integrate various services using the same point-and-click-type menus used to develop the service. In effect, business users can now create composite applications and data mashups on demand.”
