Managing application-to-application integration has never been easier
The increasingly competitive global marketplace pushes companies to evolve business and IT strategies faster than ever. Rapidly expanding businesses evolve via new markets, initiatives, mergers and acquisitions, and other growth strategies, and the kind of file transfer technology needed to keep up — let alone make competitive gains. This often leads to an infrastructure comprised of complex, disparate systems that create inefficient business exchanges.
Companies must enable future growth initiatives via a sustainable architecture for enterprise integration that also supports with a company’s B2B integration and data transformation needs. This foundation will help drive both operational efficiency and customer satisfaction, while also lowering the total cost of ownership.
Facing an integration problem?
31% of executives said their main challenge was integration with existing architecture. Interoperability also was a concern with 26 percent of those surveyed.

Painless, seamless integration
But connecting cloud, enterprise service bus (ESB) architectures, and various other interacting A2A processes creates application integration hurdles. Seamlessly coalescing the different connection modes, data types, and a spectrum of connectivity protocols, all while maintaining maximum security and maximum uptime, to support people, applications, and systems working and collaborating together requires a next-generation solution.
This type of technology enables:
- Agility to keep critical business and financial information up to date and make better, faster business decisions.
- Scalability to take on legacy data functionality and grow with your business without constantly interrupting daily workflows.
- Interoperability to meld legacy applications, back-end application integration systems (such as Salesforce and SAP), homegrown scripts, and cloud applications.
- Automation that taps workflow and event processing and content-based routing to eliminate painstaking manual file transfer processes.
- Auditability for tracking HR and expense reporting, benefits claims, and proprietary file sharing, especially in highly regulated industries where meeting mandates means all audit trails all the time.
