New thought leadership white paper: Integration Information Management Infrastructure

Shawn Ahmed recently published a thought leadership white paper making the case for a best-of-suite EIM vs. a best-of-breed solution.

In this paper, he discusses the efficiency, process standardization, effectiveness, and reduced risk that are provided with a best-of-suite approach.  He states,  “Best-of-suite solutions are those that are delivered by software suite vendors and designed to plug into existing IT architectures. This helps maintain a standardized IT environment that allows organizations like yours to continuously realize the benefits of integration.”

Please use this paper  to facilitate your customer-focused information and data management strategy discussions.
