Description

How do you approach answering queries when your data is stored in multiple databases that were designed independently by different people? This is first comprehensive book on data integration and is written by three of the most respected experts in the field.

This book provides an extensive introduction to the theory and concepts underlying today's data integration techniques, with detailed, instruction for their application using concrete examples throughout to explain the concepts. Data integration is the problem of answering queries that span multiple data sources (e.g., databases, web pages). Data integration problems surface in multiple contexts, including enterprise information integration, query processing on the Web, coordination between government agencies and collaboration between scientists. In some cases, data integration is the key bottleneck to making progress in a field.

The authors provide a working knowledge of data integration concepts and techniques, giving you the tools you need to develop a complete and concise package of algorithms and applications.

Readership

Database practitioners in industry, i.e., data warehouse engineers, database system designers, data architects/enterprise architects, database researchers, statisticians, data analysts, and other data professionals working at the R&D and implementation levels. Students in data analytics and knowledge discovery.

Quotes and reviews

"Researchers looking for concise and clear descriptions of the state of the art in data integration will benefit from this noteworthy effort. Graduate students in particular will acquire an excellent blueprint of the field, supplemented by almost 600 up-to-date bibliographic references they can use to further their work."--ComputingReviews.com, October 4, 2013
"Written by three of the field’s leading experts, this book manages to address a broad range of topics in its subject domain in a reasonably compact package…The intended audience is primarily academic, specifically graduate and advanced undergraduate students in a university setting. Researchers new to the field will find it to be a helpful introduction."--ComputingReviews.com, August 12, 2013
"…a well-organized and thorough treatment of data integration topics is a welcome addition to the practicing software professional’s bookshelf. If that treatment is both academically rigorous and still readable, as is the case with this book, it becomes a valuable resource for researchers and, in particular, for doctoral students."--ComputingReviews.com, July 3, 2013
"This is the definitive book on data integration technology, written by experts who invented much of the technology they write about. It’s comprehensive, with lots of technical detail very clearly explained. It’s a must-read for anyone involved in the development of data integration solutions."--Philip A. Bernstein, Distinguished Scientist, Microsoft Corporation
"Despite having been with us for decades, data integration remains a challenging, multi-faceted problem.  This book does an excellent job of bringing together and explaining its many facets along with the technical solutions that have been developed to date. The authors are three of the field's leading contributors, with a mix of both academic and industrial experience, and their presentation includes examples and manages to make even the more theoretical material accessible to readers.  All aspects of modern data integration are covered, including different styles of integration, data and schema matching, query processing and wrappers, as well as challenges posed by the Web and the wide variety of data types and formats that must be integrated today.  This book should be a great resource for graduate courses on data integration."--Michael Carey, Bren Professor of Information and Computer Sciences, UC Irvine
"The days of enterprises/organizations depending on a single, closed database have given way to a Web-dominated world in which multiple databases must interoperate and integrate. Doan (computer science, U. of Wisconsin, Madison) and colleagues at Google and the University of Pennsylvania address how database ideas have broadened to accommodate external sources of structured information, distributed aspects of the Web, and issues of data-sharing. Part I treats topics and techniques for data queries, integration, and warehousing covered in a database course. Part II discusses extended data representations that capture properties not present in the standard relational data model. Then they present novel architectures for, and trends in, addressing specific integration problems, e.g., of Web sources. Includes an extensive bibliography."--Reference and Research Book News, October 2012
