Integration is the starting point for digital disruption. We’re seeing more options to engage API led connectivity, hybrid integration and IoT, all of which enable organisations to become more agile, innovative and competitive at a faster pace than ever.
As business landscape become increasingly digitised, the integration of business systems provides benefits far beyond improved usability.
With so many industries and businesses utilising it to improve their processes, integration has become ‘the norm’. Those businesses who are struggling with poor integration are likely to feel the strain, often experiencing cost inefficiencies, a lack of reliable and accurate information for decision-making, and difficulty innovating.
Overcoming these challenges and getting ahead of the competition requires a clear strategy, with an understanding of your current and future state. This includes knowing your business and IT objectives, challenges and recommendations, as well as building a roadmap to achieve these objectives.
