About this paper
In many organisations today, more and more business users are spending increasing amounts of time trying to find and integrate the relevant pieces of data they need to perform specific process tasks and to produce business insights. A major reason for this is because the data they need is increasingly becoming distributed across many different application data stores built to support specific functional business areas. This makes it difficult to access integrated, relevant data for any kind of cross-functional use.
