Introduction

Integration is not a new concept. Within a business context, integration takes on many forms including the integration of people, business processes and systems. Usually, an organization will require integration of all of these elements to some extent.  Far too much time is spent finding, extracting and analyzing data from various systems to provide stakeholders with information on how a program is progressing. Companies and stakeholders have an insatiable need for information and require accurate and integrated data in order to make informed decisions. This results in teams spending weeks and months to pull everything together.  There is a better way!
