Today’s “citizen integrators” range from members of your enterprise IT organization, to people in sales operations, marketing, finance and HR, to analysts and administrators of SaaS applications like Salesforce or Workday. These are people increasingly finding themselves in need of a fast, multi-point and modern cloud integration platform, which is now becoming known as an integration platform as a service (iPaaS). If iPaaS is a new concept or you’re not sure if you need a cloud integration platform, take a look at 5 Signs You Need a New Cloud Integration Strategy. This list includes struggling with the Integrator’s Dilemma, unintegrated integration, a misguided notion that the cloud equals API utopia, continued use of “swivel chair” integration and deliberations about going back to on-premise systems due to diminishing SaaS returns.
If any of these signs apply to your current integration situation and you’re in the midst of building a “cloudification” strategy of your business application and platform portfolio, join us on Wednesday, April 9th at 9:00am EST / 12:00pm PST for an Executive Webinar where we’ll be joined by Forrester’s Principal Analyst Serving CIOs Stefan Ried to discuss the future of hybrid IT and what to look for in a cloud integration platform. As Ried states in this recent The Forrester Wave report:
“If the majority of business applications will be replaced by SaaS adoption, new cloud-based integration and integration platform as a service solutions need to become the center of your integration strategy.”
In this webinar, we’ll talk about why cloud-based integration is gaining traction in the enterprise, and get an overview of some of the key considerations when selecting a new integration platform. Also addressed will be industry marketing trends and a review of some of the key dynamics that are helping accelerate the adoption of cloud-based integration services.
Finally, in addition to the hybrid and enterprise IT discussion and where the trends will point integrators in the future, this webinar will feature a detailed overview and demonstration of the SnapLogic Integration Cloud. Join us in April for this cloud iPaaS overview, and take advantage of what are sure to be some great insights from Forrester analyst and expert Stefan Ried. And in the meantime, check out our technical whitepaper providing details of the SnapLogic Integration Cloud as an iPaaS solution.
