Selecting an iPaaS Framework that Delivers Overarching Business Benefitsby Adeptia Inc B2B Data Integration
The iPaaS integration framework is here since a lot of time. Smart integration tools are solving IT complexity and moving technologies at move at the speed of business. However, benefits backfire when a wrong solution is selected for integrating technologies. A right solution, brings all technologies on one platform and addresses overwhelming errors. Application leaders should carefully evaluate their technology needs and consider many things before pcking any solution.
The IT landscape is making new moments once again. With a view to become agile and drive agility organizations are haphazardly deploying new technologies in their ecosystem. These systems carry use different file format for storing data. Problems expand when business partners have to exchange data from different hybrid systems. Dibilitating data errors face organization's because of which partners fail to exchange data on time. Yesterday’s Extract Transform and Load (ETL) or Enterprise Servce Bus (solutions) cannot solve this problem. Homegrown solutions use too much of coding aswell. To seamlessly integrate diiferentiated architectures organizations will require an iPaaS solution.
Key Challenges in Selecting an Integration Tool
The Integration Technology market has been flooded with a lot of players. There are new entrants as well as technical behemoths operating in this field. Organizations face tough chalenges while selecting the right solution for their case. Understanding the integration personas is important to select the right solution.
Few years back only employees were generating data in an organization. In the present scenraios smart machines including RFID tags, sensors, and gadgets are also generating the data. Managing petabytes of data flowing from diverse sources can be a daunting task for organizations. Organizations need to create clearly spanned integration requirements while selecting an integration architecture.
Application leaders should take a broader view of organization wide application portfolios before selecting an iPaaS solution. They should also lookout for out-of-the-box connectors for connecting those endpoints. A future ready architecture should enable polyglot programming and automation to connect applications in minimum steps.And it should set up a future ready architecture for connecting cloud and onpremise applications.
Some other capabiities to watch out are:
Foundational support for application to application (A2A) and business to business (B2B) scenarios.
Total cost of ownership
Service support for specific industries, etc.
Application leaders should consider these aspects for selecting the right solution for their case. The Request for Proposal (RFP) doucument can be used to weigh these considerations and evaluate the offerings.
