Difficulty of Data Integration
Extracting data from business applications and making it available for other applications or for further business use has become an important need for large and small businesses. In addition, extracting data from applications on a periodic basis for use in reporting and analysis, has been a difficult task.
Traditionally the IT staff had to be relied upon to do this task. A primary reason for this is the complexity of the tools involved in extracting and transferring data.
Business users and analysts as well as IT staff have needed a simpler and easier to use tool to extract data or to transfer data from system to system.
The system should ideally understand the unique nature of the application or data format in consideration. It should still provide powerful extract and data conversion features. At the same time, the ease of use in getting the tool to produce useful results, should be heavily emphasized.
