Gartner: Save By Rationalising Data Integration Tools

Organisations that have implemented substantial data integration architectures can save more than US$500,000 annually by rationalising tools in the short term and adopting a shared-services model in the longer term, according to Gartner. Deployment of multiple and functionally overlapping data integration tools creates excessive cost in terms of software licensing, maintenance, and skills of up to $250,000 per tool annually.
