SDI, TDI, what's in a name

When IBM acquired the integration powertool back in 2002 it was called 'IBM Data Integrator'. Then after a bit of political squabbling, it was moved to the Tivoli brand and renamed 'Tivoli Directory Integrator'. Now, after its move to the Security brand a few years back, the name became 'Security Directory Integrator'.

I just think of it as 'Integrator', although my fingers still type 'TDI'. Old habits. And it is still being used for a wide variety of scenarios from cloud application integration to infrastructure rewiring.

So don't let the name fool you.
