Business continuity with real-time data integration

Enterprises want to protect their data. As the appetite for data volumes grows, storage technology becomes a critical business asset on which business continuity relies. My recent survey in the medium-size enterprise segment shows the five dominant investment directions at the level of data management architecture: disaster recovery (DR), high availability (HA), backup, data processing performance and migration to more advanced databases.

This suggests that corporations generally have sufficiently structured data collections but are concerned with business continuity and continuous availability of data. What infrastructures can provide these assurances? In this post I want to focus on yet another option, and that is the Real-Time Data Integration model. As an example I am going to discuss Oracle GoldenGate, which permits you to manage the data critical to your business in safety, ensuring business continuity without disruption even if the data is distributed among multiple, heterogeneous business applications and architectures.
