What is data integration?

   Data integration is the combination of technical and business processes used to combine data from disparate sources into meaningful and valuable information. A complete data integration solution delivers trusted data from various sources to support a business-ready data pipeline for DataOps.

   Data integration solutions from IBM — including data integration on IBM Cloud Pak® for Data — offer scalable, multicloud solutions to help accelerate your journey to AI. Extract large volumes of data from various sources, transform it in any style and ETL load it to enterprise data warehouse or cloud sources. Additional data integration delivery styles include:
     * Data replication: Deliver complementary features, such as near-real time data synchronization or distribution utilizing low-impact, log-based data capture
     * Data virtualization: Abstract data access from multiple sources by creating a virtual view for business users who need to access and query data on demand

   IBM data integration products can also be used stand-alone or as managed services on IBM Cloud®.
