The Integration Solution Built to Withstand all Software Requirements.
An iPaaS, or Integration Platform as a Service, is a platform that standardizes how applications are integrated into an organization. To automate business processes and share data across applications the software acts similarly to lego blocks. Each lego block represents a connector to a specific app. iPaaS systems allow workflows to be built by simply joining together the lego block-like modules or nodes. As a cloud-based operating model, the integration platform can be adapted to each of the business’s needs and selection criteria simplifying the process and reducing the amount of development effort and resources to build and scale integrations within the organization. In today’s world, as a majority of the workforces remain remote and continue to need new and sometimes complex software solutions to complete daily tasks, iPaaS allows businesses to react quickly to business needs. As the number of solutions needed continues to grow, there can be several business risks as they add to the business’s overall technology stack. iPaaS’s easy-to-use embedded system empowers anyone in a SaaS business to respond to user integration requests without adding to your development backlog.
iPaaS increases investment security
When a new issue arises within a business it always seems easiest to find the first tool that solves the immediate issue and move on. This inevitably leads to a very complex technology stack at the expense of security and efficiency. iPaaS resolves this issue by creating an environment that makes integration quick and easy to implement so that your IT or development teams are involved in the integration process and can monitor the install from the beginning.
iPaaS allows maintainability
Partner backend or cloud applications bring their own integration interfaces. Decentralized integration of such applications leads to uncontrollable proliferation, which can hardly be maintained and is very difficult to secure. Consolidating integration tasks on a single platform allows your integration teams to become efficient, secure, controllable, and certifiable.
iPaaS ensures business continuity
Centralizing all the integration processes of a company in one platform can increase the importance or value of this software and therefore must be operated with the highest possible reliability. The risk of cyber-attacks must be countered with maximum security precautions. Cloud providers offer far more in terms of availability, reliability, and security than a company can usually provide on its own with the limited teams or time resources needed. With a cloud-based iPaaS solution, you ensure that the business can address any concerns quickly and maintain the integrity of the business.
iPaaS meets various integration requirements
Whether API interfaces or classic MFT and B2B requirements an iPaaS solution can mold itself to handle complex integrations and meet the demands of even your locally operated legacy solutions. Seamlessly integrate ground-to-cloud, cloud-to-cloud, or ground-to-ground solutions with both transaction-based real-time requirements and file-based processes. An iPaaS solution helps you to bridge the worlds to create a seamless integration workflow.
A cloud-based integration platform like iPaaS offers you the greatest possible flexibility to meet all your technology and service level requirements. It allows you to seamlessly integrate all your business-related solutions so that you can enjoy the benefits of both worlds.
