Web Services OK for MC Integrations
IT executives are increasingly interested in using web services for mission-critical integration among multiple endpoints, says a survey of 170 IT execs. IDN takes a look at why CIOs and architects are finding web services approaches more appealing --- even for complicated and mission-critical Enterprise Information Integration (EII) projects.
Inside the Enterprise Information Integration Survey
The 2005 Enterprise Information Integration (EII) Survey results show increasing synergy between EII and Web Services, especially among organizations that have successfully deployed multiple EII applications. The survey was co-sponsored by ebizQ, a leading business integration web site; Ipedo Inc. a provider of EII software which combines SQL and XQuery; and Decideo, a European on-line business intelligence community.
EII is defined as the integration of data from multiple systems into a unified, consistent and accurate representation geared toward the viewing and manipulation of the data.
