Moving to the cloud is table stakes now. Business are adopting cloud infrastructure and applications faster to optimize cost and maximize ROI. As a result, iPaaS (integration platform as a service) has never been more important. At the simplest level, iPaaS is a cloud-friendly way to manage, develop, and integrate data and applications. But to truly maximize cloud benefits, make sure you have an iPaaS that goes beyond table stakes. A new report from Nucleus Research shows exactly how much you can benefit with a cloud-native, next-gen iPaaS

Benefits of iPaaS

Moving to cloud is not just about shifting the infrastructure to cloud, it also includes investing in cloud-native data integration, cloud-native data quality, cloud-native application integration, and cloud-native data management solutions. A next-gen iPaaS enables you to optimize, maximize ROI, and gain qualitative and quantitative benefits. The right iPaaS solution can help streamline and automate integration across multiple systems while eliminating errors and costly maintenance – enhancing business continuity while lowering TCO.

Nucleus Research, a global provider of ROI-focused technology research and advisory services, recently interviewed Informatica iPaaS customers. The report reveals striking benefits, including these results:

  • Customers realized an average ROI of 324% over a three-year period, with an average payback period of four months.
  • Customers realized an average annual TCO of $661,306 and an average annual benefit of $2,254,645
  • The payback period to recover the initial cost of the Informatica investment ranged from 3.6 months to 6 months from time-to-live, with an average of 4.8 months.

What defines a next-gen iPaaS?

Traditional iPaaS includes four essential capabilities (data integration, application integration, API management, and connectivity). A next-gen iPaaS goes far beyond, adding capabilities to address cloud-native patterns including application and API integration, data integration, mass ingestion, data quality, a cloud integration hub, B2B, monitoring, security, and more – all from a single platform.

A next-gen iPaaS enables organizations to deliver significant business value, continuity, and resilience with automation, scale, self-service, trust, and multi-cloud support.

Other defining features of next-gen iPaaS include metadata-driven intelligence and automation to accelerate integration and data management tasks. Your next-gen iPaaS solution should support any type of user, any data, and any integration pattern for maximum flexibility and scalability.
