Organizations are looking to improve time to market for their products and services by accelerating key business decisions and reducing operational expenses. They want to improve efficiencies through hyperautomation by integrating their data and applications. Many are investing in cloud applications, such as Salesforce, Workday, NetSuite and others. In addition, they have existing investments in on-premises applications such SAP, Oracle ERP and other custom applications. Connecting all these applications and the data spread across on-premises and multi-cloud environments is extremely critical for the success of any business.
A typical business process, like an order flow, traverses through multiple applications, such as order entry, pricing, CRM and inventory management, in real time. For example, telco companies need to process orders, which generally initiates a business process in an on-premises order management system. It then connects to a cloud-based CRM system, such as Salesforce, to retrieve and update customer data, followed by an update to a scheduling and inventory management system. The business process needs to connect with all these systems in a timely and logical manner to read, update and synchronize data between these applications.
How do you make sure the order-to-inventory process travels flawlessly across the cloud and on-premises applications? By adopting an iPaaS (integration platform as a service) to drive excellent customer and employee experiences. An iPaaS is designed for enterprises with a vision of end-to-end hyperautomation, data integration and application integration. iPaaS is a gold standard for integration and hyperautomation and includes process automation, data integration, application integration, application programming interface (API)-driven integration and connectivity across disparate on-premises and cloud environments.
Whether you’re planning to connect your applications and synchronize data or modernize your legacy applications, iPaaS is critical to your success. The Informatica® Cloud Application Integration solution is a core product offering of Informatica’s iPaaS, which enables organizations to integrate applications, hyperautomate complex business processes, manage APIs efficiently and synchronize data across multiple cloud deployments and on-premises in real time.
