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