In my blogpost last week, I shared how, in just 5 minutes, you can expose MySQL, DB2, SQLServer, Oracle or SAP datasource as an OData API into Salesforce using Anypoint Data Gateway for Lightning Connect.

Data Gateway - Out of the box

But let’s say what Data Gateway offers out-of-the-box is not a perfect fit for what you want to do. Maybe you want to create an OData API for a different datasource, expose a legacy API as an OData API or do data orchestration before exposing data into Salesforce. So what do you do?

How we pay for things is fundamentally changing. You may have noticed this if you go into a store and pay for an item using an app on your phone, or by waving your smartwatch at a console.  Suddenly, handing over cash or a credit card seems a bit old-fashioned – people want to be able to pay for things whenever, wherever, without a great deal of fuss.

Why healthcare systems are failing doctors and patients: they’re in the dark

Imagine you’re a skier with a history of injuries. You fall one winter but the only consequence is a sore head and a warning to avoid concussion; the next winter you fall and lose consciousness, and your doctors have no idea about your medical history nor the doctor’s report from just a year ago. Plus, the medical equipment they’re using isn’t connected to any system, so they have to keep entering your information in their computers, increasing the chance of human error. Healthcare professionals being in the dark about your medical history could jeopardize your life.

Stop making spaghetti code

Spaghetti is delicious when it’s on your dinner plate, but it can give you indigestion when it’s an enterprise integration pattern. When developers and IT teams are tasked with building integrations, creating too many point-to-point integrations can create an ugly mess that’s brittle, expensive to maintain, and difficult to modify or adapt. This has negative effects on enterprise agility and efficiency.

Last month, Amazon announced it would open its second bricks-and-mortar bookstore in San Diego. Its first physical bookstore opened last year in Seattle, setting off a flurry about what that meant for the online retail giant and the future of retail itself.

According to UK tech news site IDGConnect, the physical store is part of ” a general shift towards data driven omni-channel customer experiences…the extensive customer data now available via online channels means companies can now provide a range of targeted customer experiences to suit every purpose. Advanced analytics also means that companies can better stock stores based on up-to-date sales information.”
