Data Integration – Choosing the Right Approach

By Dr. Chris Harding, Founder and Principal of Lacibus Ltd.

How do you approach data integration?

While it is often done on a case-by-case basis, a recent survey of enterprise and solution architects by The Open Group found that 62% of organisations are using or planning to use a specific data integration approach such as data virtualisation, data fabric, or data mesh. How would you pick the right approach for your organisation?

Questions like this are not best answered “off the top of your head”. You want to understand how the different approaches would work in your particular situation. You want to read explanations of them, and case studies. You want to talk to people with similar problems, see what they are doing or have done, and how this compares with what you want to do. You want to be able to follow standards and best practices.
