In a world replete with data, what often gets overlooked is the nexus between data integration technologies and the increasingly rigid frameworks of regulatory compliance. While it’s generally understood that compliance demands meticulous data management, fewer realize that data integration tools themselves have undergone an evolution to meet these strict criteria.
The Reactive to Proactive Transition
Initially, data integration tools were designed with a singular focus — ensuring efficient data consolidation from disparate sources. However, this reactive approach has undergone a seismic shift. Today’s tools are geared towards proactive compliance, designed to anticipate and meet regulatory requirements even as they evolve. This proactive approach can be aptly termed as “compliance-centric data integration.”
