How Technology Integration Engineers More Value from Digital Initiativesby Adeptia Inc B2B Data Integration
Digital transformation is becoming rampant in medium to large organizations. Almost every company has plans for IT expansion. Enterprises are investing heavily in digital technologies and restructuring IT models. However, after a few days, they are reverting back to old models. They are facing huge problems in navigating through differentiated technologies that speak different languages. The right solution to beat this challenge is B2B data integration, it helps in aligning technologies with business outcomes. It provides the foundation to digital initiatives and builds knowledge. It helps enterprises in ensuring that technologies are working in tandem.
Haphazard Technology Adoption Has Blowbacks
Enterprises are adopting digital technologies because their competitors are rapidly adopting new technologies. They believe that if they won’t then their competitors will make use of better technologies and transform their business into dust. They are adopting new technologies with very less focus on data integration. This haphazard adoption of technologies is negatively impacting the business outcomes. Lack of integration is creating friction between them and preventing the smoother functioning of business operations.
Integration Allows Smoother Symbiosis Between Technologies
Today’s organizations are adopting new technologies and upending their business ecosystem in totally new ways. They are changing the way they deliver or expose services, develop applications, and testing them. While doing this, they are neglecting integration layer. They are failing to get a single view of technologies, manage the lifecycle of applications, and structuring processes. To counteract these challenges they need to have a strategy beforehand. The right strategy to deal with these problems is technology integration.
End-to-End technology integration helps in integrating large pieces of technology and ensuring connectivity between them. This helps technologies from different paradigms to function smoothly with each other. Enterprises get the ability to create an intelligent mesh that ensures that all technologies in a network can be connected with each other without any friction.
Agile Integration Smooths the Path for Software Integration
Start-to-End integration of technologies also accelerates software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) in many unseen ways. It helps developers in moving through a DevOps environment more efficiently and quickly. The DevOps environment is quite different than the traditional waterfall development environments. In traditional development environments, developers have to develop things up and hand it over to the testing team. The testing teams verify code and again sends it back to the development. All these marathon runs are not only time intensive & engineering intensive but also code intensive.
In DevOps, Developers have to package things before moving them to production or handling over to release manager. Developers work closely with business teams and testers for defining integrations. Operations teams work along with testing teams for rectifying bugs and errors. Continuous development and continuous testing prevent inefficiencies from reaching the next stage. Agile integration can further streamline DevOps and prevent inefficiencies from reaching the next level. With top-to-bottom integration, teams can ensure even greater interoperability between development and testing team.
Teams can merge capabilities and leverage automated development and testing tools and minimize the development cycle. Teams can roll out services faster and bring products faster to the market. They can make changes to the business IT ecosystem with minimum disruption. A three-month rollout can be shortened in a few days. And enterprises can set up an overarching business benefits frameworks that respond to technology shifts and innovations.
