Jeff Kaplan on Cloud Integration published a discussion I had recently with Jeff Kaplan, Founder and Managing Director of THINKstrategies. Not surprisingly, the discussion quickly turned to the importance of data integration to cloud success. I asked him why cloud data management is getting so much attention these days. His answer:

  • “First, because Cloud solutions are creating a new strata of resources that are generating and utilizing important data that is being layered on top of that which is being produced by organizations’ legacy systems and software.
  • Second, the data being generated by Cloud solutions can be accessed real-time and aggregated across multiple sources.
  • Third, capitalizing on this data is an important part of maximizing the value of the Cloud. Therefore, creating effective Cloud data management capabilities is essential.”
