Powerful integration solutions quickly and securely connect any application or data source.
Business is moving too quickly for outdated
traditional integration processes.
Today, the average company uses over 400 different internal and external data sources in its analytics processes. The average business transaction crosses over 35 different backend systems. These numbers are growing exponentially as innovative new sources and processes continue to be introduced.
Traditional integration approaches such as hard-coding and point-to-point integration were sufficient when organizations connected and integrated only a handful of applications and data sources. But now, as the number of systems – and connections between them – has grown exponentially, integrating them through these outdated approaches becomes exceedingly difficult. When a change is needed – or a new application, data source, or endpoint is added – all the connections must be created or reestablished.
Because there is minimal opportunity for reuse as these changes are required, each one demands significant IT time and effort. Additionally, the process of setting up all the connections is so resource-intensive that much of the data remains locked up in silos and inaccessible to the applications and individuals who need it.
In today’s environment, where speed, agility, and efficiency are critical for survival, the traditional approach just won’t cut it. It consumes valuable IT time while producing lackluster results. Market forces compel organizations to abandon this inefficient and expensive approach that impedes their success as they strive to transform their operations and extract the most value from their data.
A more scalable and agile integration
approach is needed.
To succeed in this high-volume, high-velocity business environment, companies need to adopt new methods that future-proof their operations. These solutions must offer business and technical benefits that position the company for rapid growth and change without placing additional stress on human and capital resources.
For example, these solutions must be flexible, scalable, and easy to use. They need to simplify the management of integration, allowing IT to quickly add new systems and reuse hard work they’ve already invested. This ability to leverage previous efforts reduces maintenance costs and allows IT to focus on higher-value initiatives.
Also, to provide the full functionality required, these new approaches must connect and integrate unlimited data sources so that the right users, applications, and devices can leverage them. Then, supported by new information, managers can make better decisions faster, enabling them to act quickly and seize new opportunities for their companies. They can deliver improved customer and employee experiences that drive satisfaction and loyalty. They can also leverage data to improve existing products and services, and develop new offerings that create competitive advantages.
But it takes the right integration solutions to bring data and applications together quickly, accurately, and seamlessly.
