If you have heard the term “iPaaS” but still aren’t quite sure what it means, join us tomorrow, Wednesday, July 20th at 10am PST, for a webinar in partnership with Synerzip to hear more about this increasingly recognized term and why you might be ready to adopt an integration platform as a service (iPaaS) solution.
It’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.”

With the recent publication of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), the awareness of a new approach for connecting data, applications, APIs and the Internet of Things is on the rise. A good example is the recent feature in NetworkWorld on the category: iPaaS: What this cloud technology is and why it’s important, which includes an overview of SnapLogic customer GameStop.
The right iPaaS solution should be built to connect the 3 A’s of enterprise integration: Anything (data, apps, APIs, things), Anytime (real-time, batch, streaming), Anywhere (cloud, on prem, hybrid). I’m often asked what are some of the most common iPaaS use cases today.
Here are four:
This week the SnapLogic team will be in San Francisco for Anaplan Hub 2016, talking to partners and customers about how SnapLogic provides an integration solution for connecting Anaplan with other cloud and on-premises applications and data sources, allowing users to connect without chaos and better utilize Anaplan for operational planning and business performance across their IT organizations.

SnapLogic customer GameStop was featured in a great write up on the integration platform as a service (iPaaS) market today in NetworkWorld: iPaaS: What this cloud technology is and why it’s important. The article highlights how, “iPaaS vendor SnapLogic shows how many cloud-based apps, from Salesforce or Workday, Hadoop and IoT can be integrated into an iPaaS and then streamed into on-premises systems.” Continue reading “iPaaS: The Cooler, Hipper ETL and ESB at GameStop”
