single data integration platform, we will be able to receive and deliver
data immediately to all internal applications and external suppliers and
partners, the way it is needed — virtual or physical data integration —
and when it is needed without rebuilding the logic. We can now unify data

This would be many times more complex to implement and maintain using
hand-coded systems, if we were able to do that at all.” – Jonathan Levine,
