As our recently published whitepaper, “How to articulate the value of integration,” reveals, “integration has become a key determinant of who leads and who lags in today’s global economy.” However, despite the growing focus on building a fully connected organization, many businesses struggle to achieve it, due to a lack of business and IT alignment and a clear understanding of the value better integrations create.
Although different, platform benefits and business outcomes are ultimately connected. Each can be used to inform business cases, convince non-technical stakeholders, and motivate entire IT organizations to build projects of the highest quality.
The total value of integration for an organization can be measured by direct and indirect value. As I explained in my last post, communicating both is important; direct value of integration – what we also call “platform benefits” – only tells part of a compelling story.
The total value of integration for an organization is measured in two ways: direct and indirect value. Articulating value in both is important, but this blog post will define and explore the direct value piece in depth.
