When a business is comtemplating consolidating databases, it is important to be clear what the purpose of the consolidation is.

A hardware consolidation may assist with performance issues, but if data integration is the true underlying problem, then some sort of software solution is more or less inevitable.

This does not necessarily have to involve a merging of databases, though, indeed most packaged software solutions running on top of a database would not permit such an activity. It may just involve better data integration between the databases concerned, which can sometimes be solved by the use of data integration tools.
