Reasons Why Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) is a Need of Modern Enterprise IT Infrastructure

By Nikhil Sonawane - September 08, 2022 4 Mins Read

Modern enterprise tech stack has multiple applications, systems, and tools integrated into it to streamline workflows. Organizations with such IT infrastructure need an integration platform as a service (iPaaS) solution to ensure seamless integration.

Businesses globally have embraced cloud-based applications into their IT infrastructure to streamline various aspects of their processes. Many enterprises find it difficult to explore the tech marketplace to look out for a solution that resolves their challenges of connecting new tools and current traditional systems. The adoption of hybrid cloud has made the integration of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications into the tech stack a tricky task to accomplish.

The post-pandemic world has spotlighted the benefits of cloud and SaaS applications, yet the challenges and opportunities of an integrated hybrid cloud are misinterpreted by many organizations. A few organizations are reaping the benefits of a seamlessly integrated IT infrastructure by partnering with integration platform as a service.

Here are a few reasons why modern IT infrastructure needs an iPaaS solution:

Compliance adherence

Integrating iPaaS into the enterprises’ tech stack ensures customer data safety in the IT landscape. Businesses today integrate multiple software, applications, and tools into their IT infrastructure, which increases the risk of data being scattered, lost, or restricted. Organizations need to adhere to privacy laws to keep their sensitive customer data secure from various threats. It is a challenging task for a few organizations to track and manage data because of intricate integration and the lack of tools to adhere to compliance.

iPaaS provides complete control over the data across all connections by unifying the software integrations and data in one dedicated cloud environment. 

Integration platform as a service enables businesses to track and log all the software connections to generate actionable insights on the data and detects all data breaches. Integrating iPaaS into the business network will secure customer data between the integrated systems to restrict its access to unauthorized parties.

Enhance Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Integration platform as a service enables enterprises to improve data accessibility to leverage predictive technologies. The success of AI and ML tools depends on the quality and type of data fed to the systems. Businesses generate a huge volume of data through various channels and customer journeys which they can analyze to make more informed decisions based on the predictions. Enterprises need to seamlessly integrate machine learning and artificial intelligence tools into the customer workflows and connect multiple systems that generate data throughout the business network. Integrating the best iPaaS solution enables organizations to seamlessly integrate various applications, systems, and data sources. Moreover, it is one of the most effective ways to centralize and structure data gathered from various sources and types. In distributed data lakes, iPaaS offers a holistic view and insights of data in real-time to feed AI and ML tools with good quality data.

iPaaS thrives in an Application Programming Interface (API) world

With the rapid development of applications and systems, businesses need to integrate quickly with multiple services and business models to ensure continuity.  Integration platform as a service is a perfect solution to minimize the cost of integration and streamline the interaction between the systems in the IT infrastructure. Enterprises streamline the visualization of the connections between the application on the business network by integrating software APIs. iPaaS plays a significant role in creating and managing software integrations without any technical expertise. Integration platform as a service centralizes all the APIs on a centralized platform to help CIOs configure, track and modify them as per the business requirements.
