Ensure Your Integration Strategy Supports Modern Integration Trends

According to this Gartner report “software engineering leaders responsible for integration must enable self-service, capitalise on existing API’s, implement a hybrid integration platform and use embedded integration sparingly”.

Strategic Planning Assumption

“By 2025, more than 75% of the midsize, large and global organizations will establish integration strategy empowerment teams to support collaborative integration, up from 40% in 2021.”

We believe the key findings are:

  • “Integration has traditionally been delivered by a centralized team. This model only allows for linear scaling of integration implementation and can be a bottleneck.”
  • “Integrations are increasingly being delivered by API-based approaches, which provide flexibility but can complicate the design, reduce performance and increase technical complexity.”
  • “SaaS vendors are embedding integration features inside their platforms, but often these embedded integration capabilities are very narrow and focus on a limited number of use cases or scenarios.”
