The article discusses the importance of post merger information technology (IT) integration to realization of the merger vision in the banking industry.

To tackle Customer Data Integration issues, financial services organizations are looking to XML, Service-Oriented Architectures and Web Services to help them create effective enterprise structures that provide flexibility, speed and transparency across their operations.
