dell boomi logo The Quest for a Cloud Integration StrategyHistorically, enterprise-wide integration and its countless business benefits have only been available to large companies due to the high costs of purchasing and implementing integration solutions, which until recently amounted to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Those who could afford to purchase and implement enterprise integration solutions realized cost efficiencies from automated business processes spanning multiple systems, the elimination of costly and error-prone manual data entry, and faster responsiveness to changing business needs.

In choosing an integration strategy, businesses must be acutely aware of the repercussions of the path chosen as a poor choice could result in an ongoing drain of valuable IT resources and exponential costs to the organization. It is equally critical that businesses consider the need for scalability–both in terms of the growth of the customer base and the expansion of back-office solutions to include future purchases of SaaS, PaaS, and cloud computing applications. Best-of-breed integration solutions will mirror the SaaS value proposition and allow for scalability and expansion as businesses grow and change over time.
