Are Your Integration Operations Stuck in the Middle?
January 1, 2017
As businesses embrace digital transformation across all aspects of operations, the data landscape is changing dramatically. Forward-thinking enterprises are tapping into prolific new data sources such as social media platforms, cloud applications, and the connected devices that make up the Internet of Things.
Organizations, however, are still playing catch-up in the area of integration—in large part due to deeply embedded middleware solutions. This white paper makes a compelling case for extending beyond middleware. It provides an overview of the disruptive forces that are not only increasing integration complexity but also exposing the deeply rooted weaknesses of middleware solutions that were architected more than a decade ago. This paper concludes with steps enterprises can begin to take today to modernize their integration operations so they are no longer a barrier but an asset in the quest for digital transformation.
