Number of followers on IT Central Station
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is Cloud Data Integration?

Cloud Data Integration refers to configuring a number of disparate application programs sharing data in a diverse network, including cloud-based data repositories. The relationship functions directly or through third-party software. Cloud Data Integration software allows an Enterprise to manage, monitor and cleanse data from various web-based and mobile applications.

For IT decision makers, Cloud Data Integration should deliver maximum flexibility, have a reasonable budget and be a good choice for the needs of the Enterprise, both in the present and looking to the future. In most cases, this means the use of application programming interfaces (APIs), particularly RESTful APIs.

IT Central Station professionals are tasked with growing API-led connectivity, as IT focuses on increasingly secure, integrated Cloud platforms with the challenge of connectivity problems across service-oriented architecture (SOA), SaaS and APIs. Compliance with existing regulations and changing governance policies are essential, and IT Central Station professionals can choose from a variety of cloud resources such as SQL Server, MySQL, IBM DB2, and Oracle.

Certain cloud options connect various iterations of the cloud, a hybrid cloud, multi-cloud solutions and on-premise applications directly from the web. Integrating cloud platforms frees IT from having to install software, coding or appliances on-premises. In order for IT Central Station users to consider a cloud solution, there must be agile data transformation, efficient data replication and a clear, customizable dashboard.

Now more than ever in the evolving world of cloud computing, security and compliance are at the forefront. Business in the cloud entails government and global cooperation; therefore IT Central Station user experts have more responsibility and need multiple levels of security and transparency to manage cloud relationships.

Cloud Data Integration must be easy to use and have an intuitive and clear interface. The product(s) must synchronize the cloud-based data and applications through a cloud-based interface. IT Central Station users access and extract data from a centralized location with tools to be able to maneuver data between applications. Data replication and speed to market will help in determining the best Cloud Data Integration tools for IT and DevOps.
