Don’t be fooled by the name; IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator integrates anything, and it is not in any way limited to directories. It is a truly generic data integration tool that is suitable for a wide range of problems that usually require custom coding and significantly more resources to address with traditional integration tools.

This IBM Redbooks publication shows you how Directory Integrator can be used for a wide range of applications utilizing its unique architecture and unparalleled flexibility. We discuss the business context for this evolutionary data integration and tell you how to architect and design an enterprise data synchronization approach. By telling you everything about Directory Integrator’s component structure and then applying all the techniques in two comprehensive business scenarios, we build a formidable base for your own data integration and synchronization projects.

This book is a valuable resource for security administrators and architects who want to understand and implement a directory synchronization project.
