The data integration tool market was worth approximately $2.8 billion in constant currency at the end of 2015, an increase of 10.5% from the end of 2014. The discipline of data integration comprises the practices, architectural techniques and tools that ingest, transform, combine and provision data across the spectrum of information types in the enterprise and beyond — to meet the data consumption requirements of all applications and business processes.
The biggest changes in the market from 2015 are the increased demand for data virtualization, the growing use of data integration tools to combine "data lakes" with existing integration solutions, and the overall expectation that data integration will become cloud- and on-premises-agnostic.

- Reduce NIGO by anywhere from 55% to 93%
- Achieve a 300% average ROI "

The average organization spends up to 10% of its annual budget on T&E, making it one of the largest controllable areas of discretionary spending. Combined with the fact that up to 90% of employee expenses are incurred on business trips each year, this means accurate expense management is more important than ever.

Yet how can they increase visibility and control without sacrificing employee trust and empowerment?
Streamlining expense management can help organizations save money, gain efficiencies and maintain control while increasing employee flexibility and freedom.
