What is IPaaS?
Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS) is a set of automated tools for connecting software systems that are deployed in different environments. IPaaS is implemented to improve efficiency and productivity by large business-to-business enterprises. Information in separated environments is brought together without increasing IT costs. IPaaS has filled a gap in the software market by creating a system that allows integral integration and communication between systems. IPaaS is a cloud-based integration platform used to connect software applications that wouldn’t automatically connect due to the fact they come from different avenues. It is common practice that different departments including sales, marketing, and support run on separate systems. IPaaS makes it possible to integrate and connect applications. Communication is improved between cloud-to-cloud, cloud-to-on-premise, on-premise-to-on-premise platforms without the hassle of installing any hardware.
Other integration platforms include:
Platform as a service (PaaS) provides a platform for users to develop, run, and manage applications without the required infrastructure maintenance. These include the servers, networks, memory and operating systems. The focus of PaaS is on one element rather than the entire system. This allows developers to change and develop specific operating systems without disrupting the entire system. Software as a service (SaaS) is when the software is provided on a subscription basis to the user as it is needed by a third party. This eliminates the need for a central storage center, which saves time, space and money.
How does IPaaS work?
IPaaS provides the infrastructure which allows for the creation of connections and the set up of software applications within the cloud. Companies can dictate the types of connections allowed within the platform such as: prebuilt connectors, business rules, maps, and transformations. This results in connections for integration and application program interface (API) management.
IPaaS is often used by large business-to-business companies that need to integrate on-premises applications with cloud applications. Both older and newer companies can benefit from IPaaS. Older companies are able to modify their tools to work with cloud-based services. Newer companies born in the cloud are finding success leveraging cloud-based services. When used correctly, there are many benefits to both the company and its customers.
|For your Customers||Within a Company|
|A single location|
Consumers’ data and software are connected in one convenient cloud-based location. You will no longer need to search for ways to connect and manage data. Data analysis, integration, and management are in the palm of your client’s hands.
Data can be shared and processed as it is needed. This reduces waiting times and allowing for fast and sound decision making.
The amalgamation of information at a local source reduces the risk of data being lost or misinterpreted. Consumers can make more informed decisions.
Connections across different platforms and environments can be managed by multiple teams from a single platform. This creates better communication and connection within the company.
To become integrated within a cloud-based age you will require successful connections of information and applications within your company. Integration creates a central environment for companies to view, manage and modify all data and operations. Having a business that is in-sync is the key to efficiency and success.
