Just a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend Gartner’s Symposium/ITXPO in Orlando, Florida. ITXPO is always a great event filled with a lot of new ideas as well as a forum to speak with IT leaders about their views and experiences on current challenges and new technologies. This year, in particular, I noticed a significant overlap between what Gartner analysts were speaking about in sessions and the challenges and upcoming projects CIOs and IT Managers were talking about on the exhibit floor.
With the amount of data flowing in and out of various applications, databases, and systems, organizations today require a single, unified system to provide reliable and accessible data for individuals at all levels of the organization. And with the changes that are being brought about with IoT and big data, the importance of fast, reliable, and secure data processing is more important than ever.
In response to this, IT organizations are increasingly relying on software that provides data management for improved decision-making. One of the most commonly used systems today for integrating business processes and data is SAP NetWeaver. NetWeaver is an application builder for integrating processes and databases from multiple sources.
