Data Integration is the problem of combining data residing at different sources and providing the user with a unified view of these data. This important problem emerges in a variety of situations both commercial (when two similar companies need to merge their databases) and scientific. Data integration appears with increasing frequency as the volume and the need to share existing data increases.
An IBM white paper describing the infrastructure implications of today’s converging technology forces and the software defined, next-generation data center transformation vital to capitalizing on them.

You can have all the latest features of iOS 8 on your iPhone, but if you’re still using an iPhone 4s, you won’t be able to take advantage of most of them.
This should serve as an appropriate metaphor for this audience because when it comes to data storage, many of today’s storage solutions have been around since the 1970s…as in the the world of mobile, today’s data storage needs are revealing just how limited those older solutions are. Even if a company has updated almost everything in its IT ecosystem, it takes only one unchanged layer to prevent them from realizing the benefits of the latest technology.
With petabyte scale, reliability, performance, and efficiency the order of the day we are fast approaching that point with storage. There is without question a need to change in the current storage paradigm.
In this webinar you will learn about current IT storage challenges and useful insights about next-generation storage solutions.
Upgrading security systems to meet both current and future needs is no small feat. So when a Texas-based surveillance system integrator began work with a large national nonprofit foundation on its 20,000 square foot park-like property, existing infrastructure and future system deployment were primary considerations. With the objective to update the nonprofit’s Virtual Management Software (VMS) while leveraging existing analog and IP cameras, the system integrator needed a cost-effective solution to meet their current needs with the ability to scale for rapid growth.
Download this case study to learn more about how the system integrator engaged with NUUO, a leading NVR and VMS manufacturer known for seamless integration of 3rd party cameras to build a customized system that would suit the nonprofit’s needs.
Today, the growth in the volume, variety, and availability of health data allows greater focus on individual wellness, as well as a way to provide care in a smarter way. In this webcast you will learn how the IBM Integration solution for healthcare can provide rapid connectivity, simplify IT infrastructure and drive enhanced patient care.

Businesses are embracing public cloud because it promises increased agility and scalability. But it can also introduce complexity, interoperability, and security concerns. Hybrid cloud is emerging as a way to mitigate those concerns by providing the right combination of internal controls with the ability to securely scale to meet business demand for IT resources.
As you contemplate moving various pre-production and production workloads—and your mission-critical and sensitive data—to the cloud, be sure to develop a strategic approach based on your business and IT objectives.
Here are the top five considerations to keep in mind as you begin evaluating hybrid cloud for your workloads.
