Integration: connecting the dots, keeping track of the whole

Now that all-in-one business suites are being replaced with best-of-breed IT landscapes, solid integration between business applications is more important than ever. A systemic approach based on technical and strategic best practices is paramount to keep track of the whole. 

Why integration matters

From managing complexity to unlocking data

 In today’s IT landscapes, every business process seems to have its own niche application. However, the processes itself still require multiple internal and external stakeholders to work together.

Integration challenges

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.

Make smart profits with P2P automation

Het rommelt op de finance afdeling. Inkoop en crediteuren zijn regelmatig niet goed op elkaar afgestemd. Collega’s werken in verschillende tools. En data is niet gekoppeld. Daardoor is het voor inkopers vaak zoeken naar de juiste informatie. Dat kost tijd en geld dat niet besteed kan worden aan strategisch inkoopbeleid. Gelukkig is de oplossing minder complex dan je misschien zou denken.
