There are two themes driving the urgency of integration platform as a service (iPaaS) in the enterprise:
- “Cloudification”: Cloud expansion has hit a tipping point and most IT organizations are either running to keep up or trying to get ahead of the pace of this transformation.
- Agility: Business users’ need for speed stemming from mobile, social and software as a service (SaaS) expectations.
As a result, four new requirements for elastic iPaaS have arisen that must not be ignored. Legacy integration tools and technologies typically have the following characteristics: metadata-driven, drag and drop interface, pre-built connectors, management and monitoring features, transaction support, SOAP and REST APIs, transformation and cloud deployment.
Read this SnapLogic whitepaper to learn about four critical new iPaaS requirements and the role they play in driving cloud application adoption in the enterprise.
