Welcome to my BeyeNETWORK Blog. This is going to be the place for us to exchange thoughts, ideas and opinions on all aspects of the information quality and data integration world. I intend this to be a forum for discussing changes in the industry, as well as how external forces influence the way we treat our information asset. The value of the blog will be greatly enhanced by your participation! I intend to introduce controversial topics here, and I fully expect that reader input will "spice it up." Here we will share ideas, vendor and client updates, problems, questions and, most importantly, your reactions. So keep coming back each week to see what is new on our Blog!

They say that data integration accounts for 80% of the effort of a data warehousing (or a variety of other enterprise application's) effort. But who are "they"? I know that the figure is often presented as the typical resource and time investment for data integration activities, but have not tracked down a source for it. I seem to recall seeing it in some data warehousing book, but do not remember which one.

 

Nonetheless, there is no reason for data integration to consume that amount of effort if the right steps are taken ahead of time to reduce the comfusion and complexity of ambiguous semantics and structure. I will discuss these issues at a webinar this Thursday, August 12 - hope you can make it!
