Last December we visited Brazil for our first Summit in South America. It was a nurturing experience for our team We got an understanding of the different challenges faced by organizations when it comes to the evil “point to point” integration, we learned there is immense adoption of open-source technologies – so much that government agencies, state-run businesses, schools, enterprises and other organizations have been replacing their closed-source software with open source options.
We are sitting at the precipice of a data-driven era. With billions of devices joining the vast Internet of Things every year, unfathomable amounts of information generated from every activity and interaction a customer performs, and multiple platforms across which all of this data needs to be shared, the connected world is at our fingertips. But will you be able to harness this power?
As companies adopt more and more SaaS applications, there is a pressing need to connect these applications to each other, as well as to legacy applications. Companies who don’t create connectivity between SaaS applications end up with information silos. Front office applications, without information from the system of record, don’t provide value. Back office data, if not surfaced in a system of engagement, is irrelevant.
The way businesses use SaaS applications, systems and services has changed dramatically; having a solid integration solution in place is crucial for enabling seamless connectivity. A couple weeks ago, we discussed the importance of choosing an iPaaS solution that fits your specific integration needs – not all businesses are created equally and what works for one organization may not work for another. Properly evaluating a solution can have a huge impact on the success of your business.
