Mainstream approaches to enterprise application are changing, driven by the adoption of cloud computing models and public API's, and the emergence of mobile applications as a delivery channel: Your company is moving to the cloud and rapidly adopting mobile as a delivery channel.
Your business wants more effective engagement with customers via web, mobile, and social channels. Your partners want more collaboration with you. Lines of business (LOBs) are increasingly adopting cloud services (SaaS). IT has to maintain governance and be ready to help.
Where enterprise application integration projects used to be driven by your Integration Competency Center or Center of Excellence, Integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) vendors now offer simplified integration tools. What approach do you take? Be flexible and take an adaptive approach to integration.
Choose the Right Tool Based on Your Role
Application Project and LOB Developers
Time-to-market pressures make you yearn for a simple, easy-to-use application integration platform, especially because speed seems more important than long-term reliability, scalability, and maintainability. Traditional on-premise enterprise application integration seems too complex for innovative prototyping.
No worries. Using the same underlying industry-leading architecture that drives many of the world's largest integration projects, TIBCO® Cloud Integration, is a lightweight platform purpose-built for the cloud that features a streamlined user interface for API development. It's an integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) for easily creating, governing, and consuming services and APIs, with the added benefit that organizations can smoothly spin out those services internally and externally on demand.
Integration Competency Center Developers
Due to the sheer volume of work and typical fast turns, the Integration Competency Center cannot own all enterprise application integration projects. But by adopting an adaptive approach and working collaboratively to guide various teams toward a common set of tools, you can achieve governance over standards and architecture. Down the road, if a project proves to be successful and becomes your responsibility, the common set of technologies provides a more seamless transition.
