Operating multiple data sources and various services can be a daunting task for businesses. Usually, each data source has its own format, structure, and protocols, making it challenging to extract, transform, and load data effectively. Without seamless data integration, organizations often face the same challenges:
Data is often scattered across different departments and systems, creating data silos.
- The complexity of managing data from multiple sources requires dealing with various APIs, data formats, and connectivity challenges. It slows down operations and increases the risk of errors.
- Manually moving and transforming data between systems can lead to data inaccuracies in decision-making and reporting.
