Just when you thought you had a handle on all the business trends and their affiliated terms that seem to rise out nowhere…
…Along comes the cloud.
The Cloud is Changing Data Integration
Sometimes the concept of the cloud gets hidden in other terms, like iPaaS and dPaaS (which we’ll define below). But what’s far more important than adding yet another term to your business dictionary is being aware of all the ways that the cloud is changing the face of data integration. And not just in your own backyard, either – it’s changing everywhere and its global; world-wide!
Keep reading for five ways the cloud is changing the face of data integration!
So how is the cloud changing the face of data integration world wide?
There are five broad ways the cloud is changing the face of integration world-wide. But if you’re looking for more reading, I suggest starting here, and then speak with an expert like VL when you’re ready for a real conversation about how a Saas based integration service can help you and your business.
In the mean time, as a starting place, here are the top 5 ways the cloud is changing the world of data integration forever.
1. A multi-tenant, elastic cloud infrastructure
Did you catch that?
If you’re not from a technical or IT background, I’m sure this flew right over your head (just like it flew over mine the first time I saw this phrase). But it’s really quite simple: integration in the cloud allows multiple clients to share resources and costs across a large pool of users. (You can learn more about the technical aspects of this concept a suite of data integration connectors (or connections) that are available to any of our customers who use the same applications. Don’t see one of your applications? That’s when VL will go in and build that connector, which then in turn becomes available to any of our current and future clients.
4. No Platform Deployment or Management
Because the cloud data integration solution is shared in terms of common resources, the platform deployment and management are no longer your business’ responsibility. These elements are taken on in part, if not completely, by the solution provider as part of their service ecosystem.
This is great news for your business! Back in the days of owned, on-premise technologies, these items would be your business’ sole responsibility. But thanks to the cloud, this responsibility is at least shared (if not completely taken on) by the service provider.
5. Integration Management & Monitoring Features
The savvy business owner is always looking for new sources of business intelligence, especially when these insights can lead to competitive advantages and cost savings. A feature many data integration in the cloud service providers are including with their services are portals, apps, or other management and monitoring features.
And the best part? These add-ons are part of the service offering. VL OMNI has its very own iOS App, which allows our customers to view their data transactions real-time from potentially anywhere in the world. Want to run your business from a tropical beach?
