A data product approach to data integration integrates, processes, and deliveris data by business entities. Data integration tools enable data engineers to create and manage reusable data pipelines, for both operational and analytical workloads.
Enterprise data integration tools include auto-discovery and modeling of the data product schema, which defines all the tables and fields for a specific business entity (e.g., customer, location, device, etc.), from all your existing systems – regardless of the underlying technologies or formats.
A data product ingests the data for each instance of a business entity into its own high-performance, patented Micro-Database™.
It then applies data masking tools, transformation, enrichment, and data orchestration tools – in flight – to make the individual entity's data available to any authorized data consumer, in any delivery style, while complying with data privacy and security regulations.
