Data integration is the process of combining data from many different sources into an application. You need to deliver the right data in the right format at the right timeframe to fuel great analytics and business processes.
A data integration project usually involves the following steps: accessing data from all its sources and locations, whether those are on premises or in the cloud or some combination of both; integrating data, so that records from one data source map to records in another (e.g., even if one dataset uses “lastname, firstname” and another uses “fname, lname,” the integrated set will make sure both end up in the right place). This type of data preparation is essential for analytics or other applications to be able to use the data with any success; delivering integrated data to the business exactly when the business needs it.
The dramatically increased flexibility afforded by the Internet in business-to-business transactions also presents challenges in merging information coming from so many sources.

Payment Gateways are software and servers that transmit Transaction information to Acquiring Banks and responses from Issuing Banks (such as whether a transaction is approved or declined).
These work like the online equivalent of the card-swipe/keypad terminal at your physical store, which allow you to authorize direct payment from the buyer’s credit/debit card into your Merchant Account bank balance.
Our customers often use such payment gateways as Authorize.Net, 2CO, PayPal, Google Checkout, Amazon Checkout and other systems.
If you already have a Merchant Account at your bank which allows you to authorize card accounts for direct payment into your bank account, then Authorize.Net would be the online equivalent of your in-store card-swipe/keypad terminal for card payment authorizations.
