Software integration is the process of bringing together various types of software sub-systems so that they create a unified single system.
This kind of application integration is increasingly necessary for companies that use distinct systems to perform various tasks. These operations can include anything from recording sales, keeping track of supplier information, and storing customer data. To incorporate all of these different systems and applications into one system, where data can be collected and analyzed, requires specialized functionality.
A data integration tool seeks to provide a solution for cloud-based data repositories, where large amounts of data from disparate sources need to be collated, processed and analyzed as one. By using such tools, companies can combine and utilize all of their data.
