Companies are using more applications than ever before, and many of them are in the cloud. The need for data integration has never been greater, but historical approaches may not fit. The integration approach you use should depend on your skills, timeframe and other factors. This paper compares the strengths and weaknesses of an integration platform as a service (iPaaS) approach to other historical integration approaches so you can choose the approach that’s right for you. You’ll learn:
- When iPaaS is an appropriate choice for your integration project.
- How iPaaS stacks up on the dimensions of speed, skills, complexity, cloud deployment, timeframe, data volume, and cost.
- How iPaaS compares to enterprise service bus (ESB)/enterprise application integration (EAI), file export/import, extract transform and load (ETL), and point-to-point integration.
This paper compares iPaaS to other types of data integration so you can choose the approach that’s right for you.
