The Data Integration market has evolved in recent years to offer much more than just traditional ETL, though according to professionals in the field, they remain vitally important to data warehouse environments. More modern offerings have expanded to include compatibility for Big Data as the volume and variety of data is certainly on the rise. Gartner believes that cloud integration tools are the next step, and that the majority of organizations who currently deploy legacy solutions will change over in the near future. How companies react to data volumes in the future is a discussion for another post, but Data Integration remains vital to modern digital business strategy.
