MagicForce standardised the incorporation of applications into an enterprise, making it easier to simplify business processes and exchange knowledge through apps. Growing businesses can reduce manual processes, decrease reliance on spreadsheets and email, while increasing visibility, speed and accuracy across their organisation by leveraging iPaaS technologies.
The Difficulty of Today's Integration
The number of business applications available today tackle any possible obstacle a business might face. Most of these apps are easy to use, simple to set up, beautiful interfaces are provided, and no training is needed.
Since applications are so simple to instal, it is no longer the duty of IT teams to buy and execute many business apps. Now, individual departments may select the best-of-breed applications that they want to best solve their particular tasks. This development is a direct product of "Enterprise Consumerization" and has resulted in an explosion in the number of SaaS apps—which indicates that the number of SaaS apps has increased.
For years, the concept of integrating systems has existed. But for most enterprises, once new applications are introduced, it's an afterthought. Integration projects are addressed from there on an as-needed basis. Companies also use a patchwork of application integration strategies as they finally step forward.
Out-of-the-box native integrations are included with most apps, enabling users to connect easily to unique applications. The problem with native integrations, however, is that they are intended to sell and refresh the offering of the provider and usually cover only the use cases that will check the box in the sales cycle. This means they are usually static, not built to solve significant edge cases with adequate versatility or customization capabilities.
Point-to-point connectors can be very convenient and cost-effective upfront, much like vendor-built integrations. They were usually domain-specific, however, and were not designed to handle broader business processes with versatility. Also with any conceivable permutation of business applications, it is difficult to build individual point-to-point connectors with thousands of cloud applications available today.
Anyone may create a core integration of their own. Custom integrations can be very effective through the leverage of code and APIs and are often the chosen route taken by many operating teams. However, since they need qualified technical services and are very time consuming, in a scalable, robust way, it is difficult for them. Integration, for example, includes essential features such as error handling and guaranteed data delivery, which are not easy to construct for each integration from scratch.
For growing enterprises, using an automation framework makes sense as it standardises how to track, retain, and upgrade processes through applications that are added and updated every day. Companies can incorporate applications into business processes easily, and they no longer need to reinvent the wheel with the functionality of building integration. With the right iPaaS, integration can be designed, controlled, and maintained by both line-of-business users ('citizen integrators') and technical users ('integration professionals').
Automation is the company's future, and businesses that do not follow a strong, comprehensive strategy for application automation will lose out to those that do.
