As a result, companies are faced with several ‘integration challenges’, including
- establishing reliable and secure communication between internal and external systems;
- automating business processes across solutions;
- preserving the ‘speed of innovation’ when IT needs to focus entirely on keeping things running.
Handling integration complexity
The integration of business applications often flows from an enterprise architecture exercise.. It needs to take several levels of complexity into account:
- Technological: on premise, hybrid, or SaaS
- Stakeholders: employees, clients, government agencies, subcontractors, partners etc.
- A plethora of applications, each with their own protocols.
