David Linthicum agrees with my Cloud Data Integration Predictions and Chris Boorman’s 2010 Predictions from Data Integration World. Check out what he has to say in his post, “Four Data Integration Predictions for 2010“:
“Cloud computing drives much of the growth of data integration. While we’ve not seen this as of yet, the continued interest in cloud computing will certainly drive a lot of data integration in 2010. The fact of the matter is that enterprises don’t think about data integration until they have already moved to the cloud. That’s like building a house without a driveway.”
