    "This study shows that companies using Enterprise Information Integration tools to facilitate data access far outperform those that use per-application data access methods, while achieving significant ROI," stated Michael Dortch, Senior Research Analyst at Aberdeen Group. "Most organizations keep key business data in various places in heterogeneous environments, increasingly requiring mission-critical applications to tap data from multiple sources and in multiple formats," continued Mr. Dortch.

Aberdeen Group was able to gather information across numerous industry sectors, and used 4 key performance indicators: ROI on data integration investment, transactional throughput over integration components, cost of data integration development projects and time taken during development of new applications requiring multiple sources. "Budgeting for solutions like our own Enterprise Enabler(R) now presents a compelling value proposition with strong ROI potential, significantly benefiting the bottom line for the business and for IT budgets with complex data integration challenges," stated Pamela Szabo, chief technology officer at Stone Bond Technologies.

Enterprise Enabler is a robust platform for running and monitoring integrated processes and data workflows. EE combines the full capability of Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and Extract Transform Load (ETL) in a single environment, while requiring practically no programming and minimal maintenance at a fraction of the cost of other offerings. Enterprise Enabler allows for the quick development of composite applications using web services as building blocks and aggregate data from virtually any source, including XML and Non-XML data and allowing users to quickly apply complex business rules and generate multiple resulting formats using powerful transformation capabilities, dramatically reducing integration project times.
