The accelerated surge in public and private cloud adoption during recent years has brought along several governance challenges.  So, unless you have a consolidated cloud management strategy, it can be cumbersome and potentially disastrous to manage multiple vendors with multiple skillsets, set specific governance standards, or ensure operational efficiency during software development and delivery.

With complicated cloud architecture intertwining across different types of environments, the need for a hybrid infrastructure has become crucial for enterprise readiness. There is hardly any escaping it since customer expectations – along with new and necessary third-party integrations – have made it difficult to even use a single hyper-scale cloud provider to get everything done.

With a hybrid enterprise ecosystem, enterprises are empowered to bring together various entities that are crucial to their supply chains. It may include private and public cloud providers, third-party IT vendors, as well as network service providers.

How iPaaS paves the hybrid path to modernization

Create better enterprise connectivity

iPaaS helps you easily connect your on-premise and cloud applications, without requiring any middleware or hardware. By integrating iPaaS, you can also extend the life of legacy hardware and delay or eliminate the need for future upgrades. With a single-sign-on interface, you get to manage multiple applications and systems in your hybrid ecosystem to avoid disruptions and enhance operational efficiency.

Migrate and manage data with ease

Ensuring a safe and smooth data migration from on-premise to cloud poses many challenges, as does changing your cloud providers. With an iPaaS solution, you can significantly minimize the number of connections during the migration process and ensure a seamless cutover. By using an iPaaS-enabled hybrid data warehouse, you can also control the high data volumes from various sources while creating in-house competency to store, structure, and analyze the data. In turn, it can help you make smarter decisions based on speedy data discovery and analysis of customer trends and patterns across the enterprise.

Hybridize your cloud strategy

iPaaS offers multipoint integration processes that guide you to seamlessly multipoint integration processes that support the cloud-to-cloud, the cloud-to-ground, and the ground-to-ground approach on a single platform. As a cohesive solution for both private and public cloud deployments, it also streamlines your access to data warehouses and analytics and acts as a single source of truth to maximize your cloud analytics investments.

On-demand security:

iPaaS equips you to orchestrate end-to-end security governance on an on-demand basis to safeguard your hybrid ecosystem. It helps you control the flow of data across the enterprise, with inbuilt alert mechanisms to detect any system breaches or application anomalies while staying responsive to current and emerging data threats. You can also create authentication protocols to assign the business user to the right data stream, without any accessibility overlaps.

Priority-based business automation

Customizing integrations to enable business process automation can be a time-consuming, complex, and price-heavy journey. iPaaS, with its readily-available workflows and templates based on specific use cases, can quickly orchestrate B2B data exchange while reducing process complexities through a mix of artificial intelligence, machine learning, speech recognition, and deep neural network technologies. You can leverage low-risk non-invasive technology to take over legacy processes and design a priority-based business automation strategy that is scalable in adding, reassigning, or removing resources based on enterprise needs.

iPaaS and Hybrid ecosystems: Getting more with less

  • Open channels to add skilled resources and leverage new business opportunities
  • Enhance resource management capabilities and be flexible while selecting service providers based on your requirements
  • Put governance protocols in place to align internal and external processes with regulatory compliance standards
  • Automate tedious manual-based vendor management processes such as onboarding or verification, and save a significant amount of time, money, and effort
  • Integrates all your cloud instances under one roof where multiple process and policies can be continuously monitored and assessed

The industry trailblazers of today are also focused on gearing up their enterprises for an increasingly insight-driven culture. The speed of innovation has put the ball in their court to build a hybrid ecosystem that not only does a lot of the infrastructure heavy-lifting, but also thinks by itself for the betterment of the enterprise. By deploying an iPaaS solution, they can focus on business growth instead of getting bogged down by hybrid integration barriers.
