Tips on why organizations need a robust integration strategy.
Companies like Airbnb and Uber have disrupted their markets and transformed customer experiences with teams that are a fraction of the size of the established market players. How did these companies achieve digital transformation with so few resources? The answer is simple. They did not code their applications from scratch but instead tapped existing applications and data resources to compose new and innovative solutions. The question most leaders have is how to translate this success into their organization. Gartner states, “Future applications need the functionality and data sitting in today’s applications.” So, what is that mean? It means that the current applications and data are building blocks for future, more robust applications. Achieving this goal requires unlocking their value which can be achieved by having a solid, well thought integration strategy. Today’s iPaaS (Integration Platform As A Service) platforms can quickly deliver the transformative power of APIs (Application Programming Interface), including cloud integration, data integration, and business process integration based on the integration strategy.
So, how do you get the most out of these platforms for the business? An integration platform is a tool used to connect different systems and applications quickly and easily. It simplifies integrating various services, eliminating much of the manual coding that would be required. In addition, it helps organizations save time and money by providing a reliable way to connect systems without investing in additional resources. An integration platform can provide increased scalability, flexibility, security, and privacy when dealing with complex integrations. They are easier to maintain than developing your APIs and can be automated using workflow rules, connectors, and triggers. They have fewer security and privacy settings restrictions.
