Big data is the new competitive advantage for any business which wants to thrive in the modern world. Data has been generated enough to let senior management team to base on it to analyze and make better decision. Thus, the demand for data integration has grown quickly than ever before. Time saving and easier management for data are 2 of the benefits so more and more businesses join the trend. However, data integration is more complex than you can imagine. Here’s 5 trends for data integration:
Trend #1: IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT), cloud, and 3Vs of big data (volume, variety, and velocity) are all connected. Business need to learn how to bring all these new devices, applications, and data sources together in a way that allows them to be integrated, analyzed in real time, and mined for insights. It’s the new trend so unless business try to catch up the trend in the shortest possible, this will no longer be business competitiveness.
Trend 2: Hybrid
Cloud and the adoption of Software as a Service (SaaS). Some businesses make the journey to the cloud while others remain on premises, there is increasingly more companies choose hybrid solutions. As a direct result, organizations are also increasingly finding themselves straddling hybrid integration environments as they explore cloud-based integration to solve for today’s complex use cases. But because organizations will likely remain deeply vested in their legacy ESB platforms for some time to come, CIOs will need to make sure that newly adopted cloud integration solutions are able to work hand in hand with their legacy counterparts.
Trend 3: Flexibility
Along with technology disruptions, integration platforms must face the challenge of higher customization demand from clients. Flexibility is the key factor to help satisfy the new demand of new customized function or new matching fields.. Thus, there is a widespread adoption of agile technologies such as microservices and REST to cope with the need of more flexibility for integration platforms.
Trend 4: Lack of resources
A lack of resources is making IT organizations to relocate their precious resources to what would really move the needle for revenue and customer satisfaction. Therefore, company will be looking to leverage cloud delivery of services wherever possible, including outsourcing of integration. In addition to freeing resources, outsourcing integration needs will help stakeholders have access to data for analytics and reporting—something that might not otherwise be possible with a thinly stretched IT department.
Trend 5: Data-centric integration
As data increasingly becomes a business’ most valuable asset, data needs to be freed from the constraints of applications, allowing it to play a much bigger role in your enterprise than that of merely application artifact. Already we’ve begun to see the barriers between integration and data management break down as integration platforms accommodate for data management (case in point our dPaaS model), and more and more data management platforms add capabilities around integration. On these unified platforms, ensuring that clean, quality data is available for on-demand analysis is a primary goal, not just the movement of data from one application to another. Organizations that continue to try to go for complex application integrations are slowing down the benefits of data insight and governance that could come from a centralized platform.
