The integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) is a growing breed of software applications in the IT Industry. There is a wide range of uses to these solutions across IT enterprises. Yet, most of the small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) have no need for a complex Enterprise Service Bus (ESB).
SMBs’ IT environment is less complex with fewer on-premise software applications compared to their large enterprise counterparts. The iPaaS approach is multi-tenant that helps to reduce cost by lowering the need for dedicated infrastructure. In the B2B integration scenario, the on-premise systems have to be connected to the external systems. The B2B integrations demand high-availability, horizontal scalability and ease of use.
There is a growing need for ad-hoc integrations to achieve the business goals and speed up the project delivery. This means the integration platform has to be light-weight and intuitive for non-trained users.
For the SMBs, the ESB is a overkill, so iPaaS is a natural fit. On the other hand, for the larger enterprises, iPaaS solutions are not designed to replace the ESB but can complement them.
While there are many iPaaS solutions available, depending on the enterprise requirements, one solution may be better than other. ShuffleExchange™ is a recent entrant to the iPaaS ecosystem that capitalizes on all the modern tools available in the market to deliver a state of the art solution at an affordable price point.
- iPaaS is ushering in faster IoT integration Insights - Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) is a maturing technology. Curiously, it is deemed maturing because everyone is talking about it.
- Integration choices – iPaaS vs. Middleware Insights - A growing number of enterprises are moving to the cloud while maintaining some of the legacy applications in-house due to a variety of understandable reasons.
- ShuffleExchange solves MSEC’s real-time integration challenge Case Study - Mountain States Employers Council (MSEC) provides two important benefits, among many, to its members: Training courses and seminars. MSEC depends on two separate systems to manage their membership and training content.
