Top 5 Primary Benefits of Self-service Data Integration
To support your organization’s data quality and accessibility, you can build data integrations in which data is gathered from multiple systems, transformed, then loaded to a single location, particularly from a data warehouse or data lake.
In doing so, you can rely on a variety of data integration solutions. One of the most popular and reliable is a self-service data integration solution. That’s because data integration solutions powered with self-service and automation capabilities enable non-technical business users to create data connections while freeing IT resources to focus on more strategic business priorities.
This blog post explains the multiple benefits of data integration solutions.
1. Disintegrate data silos
Data silos (meaning information locked in multiple applications) can present many problems. For one thing, they do not allow employees or users to access data. Also, the time delays that get triggered can minimize, if not diminish, the requested data value.
In some other cases, employees do not have enough information regarding certain data streams simply because they can’t witness it in applications they leverage, preventing them from requesting and leveraging that data.
Data integration solutions enable you to eliminate these data silos and avoid them in the future because the information employees need can be accessed through a centralized source.
2. Make informed business decisions
In order to make informed business decisions, you need to gain access to actionable insights from data. When you can integrate data, they can deliver actionable insights much more quickly and securely. Now, when that happens, you can use the information gathered to make informed business decisions.
3. Empower non-technical business users
Self-service data integration solutions empower non-technical business users to create data connections quickly, securely, and efficiently. Users can rely on pre-built application connectors, shared templates, dashboards, and AI-data mapping to integrate and use data. IT teams, at the same time, are freed to focus on more strategic business priorities.
4. Deliver improved customer experiences
When business users can connect and do business with customers, they can identify the needs and requirements of customers and meet them. As a result, customers are satisfied and become more likely to buy additional products or services and stay longer. This can create new revenue streams in the business.
5. Elevate teams’ productivity
When traditional data integration solutions are used, IT teams require to create custom codes and implement data mappings that take weeks or months of calendar time. During that process, IT fails to focus on high-value tasks. By leveraging self-service data integration solutions, non-techie business users are empowered to create connections much more quickly.
