Organizations can access more software with greater capabilities at a lower cost and risk.
This high SaaS/cloud adoption has significantly increased the options for organizations to access applications that store and manage data. More capable software running in the cloud can become transformational for organizations, especially those that might have otherwise been unable or unwilling to invest in previously costly or logistically prohibitive self-hosted options.
Despite this success, one unfortunate side-effect is that this trend has led to a proliferation of separated data and services.
When these SaaS solutions are not integrated out of the box, it can yield a fragmented organization – both internally and in the experiences had by customers of that organization. The common remedy is to integrate these solutions with middleware – tying applications and their data together – often in near real-time.
