At the speed at which cloud adoption has increased, enterprises are now razor-sharp focused on selecting the right type of cloud computing technology. Considering that data touchpoints have also rapidly expanded, several integration challenges have cropped up. Over the years, solutions such as software as a service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and platform as a service (PaaS) have helped enterprises tackle these challenges. In today’s cloud-first enterprise ecosystem, though, integration platform as a service (iPaaS) has emerged as a competitive differentiator to establish a connected data-rich ecosystem.
How iPaaS simplifies the adoption of Multi-Cloud models
iPaaS offers a centralized platform to integrate, manage, and monitor all your cloud-based applications; from enabling you to manage large global integration networks and deploying complex business models to providing integration insights. It simplifies the complete integration of your data workflows, application controls, security protocols, and regulatory compliance processes.
- Ease of new data source integration
- Higher data security and reliability
- Centralized portal with easy-to-use controls
- Comprehensive visibility of all internal and external operations
- Cost-saving in-house integration model
The rise of customer demand is another undeniable trend that has been influencing enterprise cloud adoption. In order to expand IT operations while running disruption-free operations, enterprises are now eyeing multi-cloud environments. Even a half-decade ago, selecting a single cloud vendor was the only affordable option to address many of the integration challenges. However, in 2020, the market has changed to the point that you are no longer under pressure to get cloud-locked with a single vendor. You can pick and choose the ideal cloud environment to meet your unique operational demands or customer requirements.
Why iPaaS is the backbone of your Multi-Cloud Enterprise Architecture?
Collaborative prowess: Improved system connectivity and transparent communication between multiple cloud environments – give cloud vendors the ability to analyze, monitor, and synchronize data quickly and securely
Smooth B2B data exchanges: Simplified integration processes and reusable data modules to offer advanced levels of self-service – use deep-dive business intelligence tools to get clearer insights
Cloud-agnostic capabilities: Rapid data and application integration for accelerated service delivery, without incurring heavy expenses – harness a hybrid integration platform that navigates past specific vendor challenges
More connected flexibility: A centralized view of all internal systems, as well as relevant systems of external partners, highly secure access controls – manage all your integration processes, anytime and anywhere
Superior API controls: Full control over API development cycles that makes it easy to implement and integrate APIs or provide additional capabilities – create APIs that scale as per your business demands

On-demand security: End-to-end security governance, with authentication protocols, to control the flow of data across applications and systems – be responsive to current and emerging threats by controlling data streams
For your multi-cloud environment to be effective, secure, and sustainable, it is pertinent to stay on top of its governance while giving it more flexibility and scalability to adapt to changing scenarios. Hence, your multi-cloud strategy must create self-running systems that are managed through cloud gateways.
With iPaaS running your multi-cloud architecture, your ecosystem is built to integrate different cloud environments in an effortless manner. It seamlessly creates dynamic new business capabilities for you to provide better experiences to customers, ensure higher operational efficiency, and enable better workforce productivity.
