Twenty years ago, the necessity of composite applications began to surface within enterprise organizations. The ability to have one application display information from several other applications was driven by the business need to provide employees with a complete channel of information. This functionality has now been transferred to a cloud location in order to allow for the inclusion of the mobile world and the Internet of Things. The Cloud Bus Webinar discusses utilization of the cloud for integration of SaaS applications, as well as increasing the value of these applications.
A Cloudy Market
This business need for a single environment to manage and integrate applications has become further highlighted, because more and more cloud applications have surfaced within the marketplace. The creation of applications such as Salesforce.com, Evernote, Dropbox, and Facebook have created a gap in functionality in many organizations. It is very important that an enterprise service bus be able to extend from your applications in the cloud; to your applications within your own data center; and then to your workforce that is in your building. Additionally, it must be compatible to those people walking around with smartphones and tablets—the mobile piece of the business environment equation.
Bus to the Cloud
With the introduction of TIBCO Cloud Bus technology, you can integrate cloud applications with enterprise applications. Previously, it has been possible to integrate that same bus with your mobile devices throughout a workforce. Cloud allows for a complete integration strategy that takes information sources from anywhere within the organization, then delivers them to consumers and workers everywhere in the world.
Composite applications, unique to your enterprise, can leverage the enterprise’s intellectual property and maximize the workforce. This integration of all things across your entire organization allows your enterprise to gain the two-second advantage that is so critical to business today.
