Hybrid Cloud Integration
As organizations begin to adopt cloud services from various providers, we see the need for hybrid cloud scenarios will be most common. Hybrid cloud environments enable organizations to continue to leverage their existing assets but expand their application networks to exploit the competitive advantages promised by the API-driven economy, mobile and IoT.
The hybrid cloud model brings with it a unique set of challenges including the diverse range of tools and skills-sets needed, data and application integration considerations around where data resides vs application infrastructure and security considerations to make sure data is properly protected and the right people maintain control. This requires deep integration expertise to design and implement effective architectures that will support secure, loosely-coupled, API-driven application services as they shift from private cloud to public cloud models and a combination there-of.Smarter with Gartner: Hybrid Integration to Empower Digital Transformation
Solving the SaaS Puzzle
Stealth IT projects are contributing to the rapid increase in the number of SaaS apps in organizations today as departments and teams looked to drive increased efficiency and productivity through the myriad of SaaS apps available today including Oracle ERP, Oracle CRM, Oracle Service Cloud, Oracle NetSuite, ServiceNow, ZenDesk, Salesforce, WorkDay, Box, Jira, Concur, DocuSign, Marketo and Webex. However, it is important to recognize that in the rush to subscribe to new SaaS services, organizations are finding inherent challenges in bringing SaaS solutions into their existing application eco-system.
Connectivity Benchmark Report (2018) This independent survey conducted by Vanson Bourne, sample size 650 IT Decision Makers (ITDMs), shared some startling numbers. 1020 average number of different, individual applications respondents think are in use in their organization; 29% average percentage of applications that respondents’ organizations currently integrate/connect together. These figures highlight two things. First, integration continues to pose a challenge for most organizations. Second, there is still a huge opportunity for organizations to increase business efficiency and innovate by integrating and connecting more of their applications. The vast majority (89%) of ITDMs believed that integration challenges are slowing or hindering digital transformation in their organization. In fact, 81% said point-to-point integration had created the biggest IT headaches they had seen.
