In this Web Seminar, BI Research Founder and President Colin White will outline the different styles of information integration (consolidation, federation, propagation, synchronization) and information integration technology (EAI, EII, ETL, MDM.) He will also discuss when to apply each technology and explain why these technologies complement rather than compete with each other. Colin will be joined by manager Lester Callif from BearingPoint, who will review a case study to highlight how these technologies are applied in a project context. The Web Seminar will be hosted by Gary O'Connell, Director of Product Marketing from the IBM Information Integration Solutions Group.
