Information-technology departments in large enterprises spend 40% of budget on information integration-combining information from different data sources into a coherent form. IDC, a market-intelligence firm, estimates that the market for data integration and access software (which includes the key enabling technology for information integration) was about $2.5 billion in 2007, and is expected to grow to $3.8 billion in 2012. This is only the cost estimate for structured or traditional database information integration. Just imagine the market for transforming text into structured information and subsequent fusion with traditional databases.
