8 Reasons Why Your Legacy Data Integration Plan Must Change

InfoQ-LogoIt’s great to see more and more discussion about the need to re-think your enterprise integration strategy. This week, I participated in an InfoQ Virtual Panel: The Current State of Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS). The key takeaways were:

  • iPaaS is no longer just about integration occurring in the cloud. iPaaS takes advantage of inherent cloud platform capabilities such as dynamic scale, containers, resource management and self-service.
  • SaaS connectors are still relevant and a preferred approach over direct API calls for productivity, simplicity, abstraction and security reasons.
    SOAP, once largely entrenched in ESBs and Integration Brokers, has given way to REST and JSON in iPaaS.
  • The future of iPaaS is connecting and enabling other high value business outcomes related to analytics, machine learning and big data.
  • Digital transformation is a driver for organizations to move from traditional on-premises middleware to iPaaS in order to drive down costs and increase velocity.”

What You Need to Know About Modern Data Integration

dave_linthicumLast week we hosted a webinar with industry analyst, thought leader and author David Linthicum that focused how the enterprise problem domains are changing and how data integration technology must change with it. The presentation boiled this down to 5 critical and lesser known data integration requirements, how to understand them, and how to pick the right approaches and technology to solve the problems.

According to David, the 5 most critical things to understand about modern data integration are:

  1. Workloads and data are likely to be distributed across traditional systems, private clouds, and public clouds.
  2. Data is growing quickly, with big data and data lakes common within most enterprises.
  3. Data must be delivered in real-time, on-demand, in support of most modern applications and business processes.
  4. Security is now systemic, it can no longer be an after thought.
  5. DevOps is the new standard for building and deploying applications and data store.
