Your enterprise completed an acquisition, or you've grown organically. Your organization centralized many applications, but many departments and business units rolled out their own applications. However you got there, you have many systems spread over your organization's landscape. Your IT task: radically simplify and rationalize your applications infrastructure -- reduce applications, migrate applications, and consolidate instances to save costs and make your enterprise more agile, yet still provide consistent, timely, complete information you can trust to users.
Because these applications are critical to running your business, there is a lot of risk in these projects, and many inherent data-centric challenges: how do you connect to your data, understand it, cleanse it, transform it, and consolidate it? In some cases, consolidating applications is not an option, so a virtual view of information for users is the correct approach. In this Web Seminar, speakers from IBM and Ventana Research will survey the scenarios, challenges, and options for information integration in large heterogeneous landscapes, and discuss best practices with customer examples.
