Who’s faking it?  Data-driven decision-making (and ensuring related investment is delivering on its promises) has been elevated in importance.  Every enterprise is replacing opinion with data-driven decision-making, correct?

A brand new research report from EMA (Enterprise Management Associates) titled, “A Data-Driven Enterprise” looks behind the curtain to separate facts and reality from fiction and aspiration.  Here are some of the findings from the latest research on enterprises.

Complex enterprises have an integration infrastructure (i2) layer that connects technologies and applications across cloud, data center, virtualized systems, mainframe, edge computing, etc.

Integration Infrastructure Management (i2M) is the “management” of the i2 layer and includes:

  • Configuration and security management
  • Monitoring and fault management
  • Alerting and automation
  • Performance optimization

The i2 layer includes a core middleware application (such as IBM MQ) along with many other “integration” technologies, such as MFT (managed file transfer), IoT, REST APIs, DataPower Gateway, and other messaging technologies (i.e., Kafka, TIBCO EMS, IBM ACE, IBM Integration Bus (IIB) and more).
