Integration evolved- iPaaS

We are an integration company in a new age of cloud Software as a Service providers. While the cloud SaaS providers battle it out for online dominance with bundles of functionality at low prices, integration between clouds has failed to evolve.

Integration is about the removal of “barriers” to free the movement of data between software systems. Integration software has failed to tackle real business problems faced by SaaS to SaaS integration. Solving the problems of data transformation and data movement is only part of the picture, but for SaaS to SaaS there is a larger picture to see; the business issues of the SaaS providers.

There is a misconception that modern cloud API's will solve integration and create a synergy between cloud SaaS. Its not happening and the integration company's have failed in their approach - we know because we talk to end users and SaaS companys daily and we understand the issues.

Integration is not about 3rd party apps or overpriced and complicated projects. Sending a customer away from your software to find a solution to a common problem is not a service.

While cloud services pour money into security and GDPR compliance, these values can be quickly compromised by a 3rd party app if in unqualified hands. Commonly, integration apps cost more than the cloud software and when implemented badly the result is not just a loss in revenue to the end user, but confusion that can drive the customer away to use a competitor.

Business demands convenience, cost, and ease of use of SaaS & PaaS while at the same time there is a need to choose the best-of-breed solution for specific parts of the business. Increasingly integration will become expected as part of the service at a reasonable price.

We have to nurture small business by providing these options and we want to reward larger business for its large data movements and number crunching. Its not only our responsibility to provide seamless communication between cloud systems, but to provide a future of synonymous integrations that together, provide strength in combined best of breed services that results in an enriched business operation.

iPaaS (integration Platform as a Service) provides the answers. With iPaaS we can move data quickly, we can filter and we can validate. We can transform and we can add intelligence. We can report, we can predict and we can measure. We can have security and we can have compliance. The world of integration and cloud communication is changing.

Over the last year we have been designing and building Linked2 - a Norwegian owned iPaaS now in Beta.

In the next months we will demonstrate the features of Linked2 iPaaS through our blog including : how we reduce complexity, remove the thrid party, reduced support costs, introduce pay as you go, whitelabelling incl. intelligent support channels, a powerful new transformation language , a universal API, scaleabilty, rewards for transaction volumes, lightning fast data and much more.

The Beta of Linked2 is now live right now...if you run a cloud and store data we would love to hear from you.
