Our partner Dell Boomi recently released a report concerning the case for a connected business. In the report, they polled a number of IT professionals regarding the impact of integration on their business. Some of the answers included:
- 89% of organizations suffer drawbacks from poor integration
- 59% of integration professionals say poor integration is their Achilles Heel
However drastic this news sounds, it’s not all bad. The survey also showed that organizations who have successfully implemented integration solutions are seeing the benefits, with three-quarters of respondents seeing acceleration in their businesses, including increased revenue.
The impetus for the connected business is part of a greater transformation occurring in the office. As integration becomes more mainstream, it joins its counterparts in the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, cognitive, robotic process automation (RPA), and human-centric business process management (BPM). With integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) serving as a major connector between these nascent technologies and legacy systems, innovative organizations will be able to pull additional customer data unseen before to drive better business decisions. The authors of Boomi’s study also points out that “new disruptive technologies are being constantly introduced to the workplace, with organizations in all sectors and industries fighting to keep up and remain competitive. The fact of the matter is we now live in a connected digital world; ultimately it takes a connected business to succeed.”
