Enterprise cloud integration spending is expected to increase dramatically this year, according to recent forecasts. Are your business leaders in line with this trend?

When I talk to customers who use iPaaS every day, it’s clear they know the value of a next-gen integration platform as a service – they can’t achieve their digital transformation without it. But some business leaders don’t understand why iPaaS is so essential. To convince your stakeholders, we bring you the Informatica Next-Gen iPaaS Virtual Summit (happening July 30 in North America, July 31 in EMEA, and August 1 in APJ). It brings together a power-packed ensemble cast of industry analysts, thought leaders, customers, partners, and our own technical wizards showcasing the latest integration trends, solutions, and best practices.



The summit provides a great opportunity to explore iPaaS with more of a business focus than we typically do at our product launch events. You’ll hear market and industry perspectives that you can bring back to your business counterparts – or invite them to join you so they can hear it firsthand. In addition, for iPaaS leaders and technical experts, the summit is an opportunity to get a first look at advanced capabilities and hear how your peers are solving their most complex integration challenges.

Highlights of the Next-Gen iPaaS Summit

At the summit, we will be showcasing how a next-generation iPaaS delivers AI-driven cloud application integration, cloud data integration, and cloud data management to accelerate innovation and future-proof your business. Here are highlights of the program:
