How to Avoid Data Integration Headaches

Recently, Dzone published a data integration guide on API management. The guide included an infographic showing the 4 top sources of data integration frustration for more than 700 developers the media outlet surveyed. I've included the infographic below, but a quick list includes:
  • Poor documentation
  • Unclear requirements
  • Different standards between systems
  • Propagating changes into integrated systems.
