Automated methods for integrating systems (AMIS) have been presented as a new approach to solving the dilemmas of multiple and uncoordinated standards, ontologies, leg acy systems and the ever-growing cost of traditional integration. This paper explores the challenges of automated methods. By identifying the challenges, we can focus our effort on the areas that are most promising as well as those most likely to fail. We may also contribute to clearing away the hype that distracts, misleads, and ultimately wastes money and labor that is better spent elsewhere.
