"The highlight of the book is that the author is able to present a broad, complicated subject in a coherent, consolidated, and readable manner. This is ideal for busy information technology managers and chief technical officers who have little time for outside reading. The book is especially valuable for those managers who are not familiar with modern data management or who are fluent in general computing technology but are tasked with managing data on a larger scale."--ComputingReviews.com, November 4, 2013 "Reeve, an enterprise information consultant with EMC, describes different techniques, technologies, and best practices for managing the transfer of data between computer systems and integrating disparate databases together within a large organization."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2013 "Few if any enterprises have the luxury of a single unified integrated data platform. Yet one of the least considered areas in enterprise information management is how we should treat and manage the growing numbers of interfaces. April Reeve presents a much-needed overview and guide to the challenges of data integration."--John Ladley, Principal of IMCue Solutions, Editor of the Data Strategy Journal
