Almost all projects involve data integration these days, because nearly every IT project involves multiple applications and databases. If you don't plan and design the data integration parts of your projects, you are destined for a data integration tar pit, with a tangled mess of point-topoint integrations of exponentially increasing complexity.

This paper is addressed to two classes of readers: the IT manager below CIO level, responsible for budgets, meeting deadlines and satisfying internal customers with many needs and demands; and the software applications vendor, who has to deliver into almost any environment and integrate with their customers' existing systems.
