Bulk or Batch Pattern Integrations
In the context of using DataConnect and for the purposes of this document, the following two high-level categories of integration patterns are considered:
Bulk/Batch integrations
Message-based integrations
Bulk/Batch integrations typically deal with large data sets on a scheduled and reasonably predictable occurrence. For example, loading sales data from multiple point of sales systems to a data warehouse on a nightly basis. The initial load time is usually long running but there are small batch updates, or deltas, that can be run ad hoc or at more frequent intervals. While these bulk/batch jobs are typically scheduled, they can also be run on demand or through an event trigger such as the file folder listener service with Integration Manager.
