Information integration (II) is the merging of information from heterogeneous sources with differing conceptual, contextual and typographical representations.
Enterprise information integration (EII) supports a unified view of data and information for an entire organization. It is used in data mining and consolidation of data from unstructured or semi-structured resources. Typically, information integration refers to textual representations of knowledge but is sometimes applied to rich-media content.
Also has been referred to as Enterprise Content Integration (ECI).
The Gilbane Report: Vol 12, Num 6 — What is Enterprise Information Integration (EII)?
An XML database a data persistence software system that allows data to be stored in XML format. These data can then be queried, exported and serialized into the desired format. XML databases are usually associated with document-oriented databases, and are a type of NoSQL database.
Relational databases and full-text search mechanisms that have been the backbone of many applications are not designed to manage XML content effectively. A new class of databases has emerged that is designed specifically to manage XML content. Typically called “XML Native Databases” or just “XML databases,” they incorporate functionality that greatly improves the management, searching, and manipulation of XML to produce the most effective XML data management solution.
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the standards organization that developed XML, has also developed many standards that can be used to access, search, process, and store XML data. XML databases take advantage of these standards to provide efficient and precise access, query, storage, and processing capabilities not found in traditional database technology. The result is that applications using XML databases are more efficient and better suited for managing XML data.
Technology and operational integration remain the most difficult and costly implementation issues for digital experience and digital transformation initiatives. Understanding the integration technologies and practices most critical for your project is a requirement for success.
This year in DC we are expanding our ability to help organizations with some of the most common integration challenges by co-locating with three events that focus on key components of digital experience strategies. These include CRM, natural language, speech, and chatbot technologies.
To encourage cross-discipline learning and networking there are “All Access” passes available for all conference attendees to attend sessions in the other events; and a combined technology showcase and networking events are available to all attendees.
Reserve your seat today and take advantage of four multi-track events in one location to up your DX “IQ” – integration quotient.

Marketing technologists are no longer rare birds, though they are often found in unfamiliar environments with less than obvious plumage. There are marketing technologists in many of our sessions this year, but we have selected a few to look at the two toughest challenges they, and their organizations, face in building modern digital strategies: support for consistent current and future multichannel experiences, and the necessary integration of data from multiple enterprise systems.
Join us Tuesday, December, 2: 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. at the Gilbane Conference to learn more.

Informatica Corporation, the provider of data integration software, announced the immediate availability of Informatica HParser, a data parsing transformation solution for Hadoop environments. Informatica HParser runs on distributions of Apache Hadoop, exploiting the parallelism of the MapReduce framework to efficiently turn unstructured complex data, such as web logs, social media data, call detail records and other data formats, into a structured or semi-structured format in Hadoop. Once transformed into a more structured format, the data can be used and validated to drive business insights and improve operations. Available in a free community edition and commercial editions, Informatica HParser provides organizations with the solution they require to extract the value of complex, unstructured data. http://www.informatica.com
