I wrote an article on the Enterprise Technology site this week. You can read the full article here: At the ‘Cloudification’ Tipping Point, Application Integration Matters More Than Ever
Here’s a summary:
“The cloud does indeed eliminate many of the costs and concerns of on-premises IT, but the challenge of enterprise data and application integration persists. In fact, “cloudification” can make solving that challenge more urgent than ever. The right approach to integration is the key to unlocking the transformative potential of your cloud investments.”
“With all of the well documented benefits of adopting the cloud it’s easy to see why you might think you don’t have to worry about integration. But there you’d be wrong.
“To leverage the elasticity and efficiency of the cloud, and to operate at the peak performance levels that your customers expect and demand, you’ll need to take a different approach to solving integration. A hybrid cloud iPaaS provides a modern and scalable architecture that seamlessly handles cloud constructs of JSON, REST, and APIs. It’s also easy for less technical users to use. In the past, integration tools required a “black belt” in the technology and a lot of code. Modern approaches are cloud-based, with the flexibility to perform integrations either in the cloud, on-premises, or even natively in a Spark or Hadoop cluster. If you want to retain some of your data on-premises, you can fully cloudify your technology and still keep your ties to hardware when necessary.”
