FREMONT, Calif.: Business in today’s world is not the same as before. Today’s world is changing with evolving technologies, and many businesses are taking advantage of it. Businesses are changing at a breakneck pace, with technology playing a vital role. Whether it is one of the modern technologies – Big data, Cloud or loT. Customers can control their respective data from anywhere and anytime. Enterprise application integration contributes to efficient data flow from one program to another.

• Move to cloudLeading enterprise application integration consulting/service companies

Cloud-based application integration is becoming the de facto framework for enabling on-premises and cloud-based business applications to act seamlessly as a secure and unified infrastructure. More than 60% of companies plan to implement cloud integration. Cloud integration eliminates the need to manage multiple data silos on-premises and in the cloud and allows authorized users to access enterprise data across different geographic locations. It also enables more effective information security by ensuring that security controls such as intrusion identification and prevention systems are in place and accessible during service initialization.

• Move to data centrality

Business often confuses being data-centric with being data-driven, but these two are different. Being data-driven means developing the organizational culture so that it uses data for various business processes, while being data-centric transforms the organization so that information becomes its primary resource. A data-driven method considers all the processes, tools, and cultural shifts needed to act on data, but lacks the internal business transformation that revolves around data.

• Execution analysis

More companies generate business intelligence and analytics on data embedded at runtime. This means that instead of storing integrated data in warehouses and then performing complex and time-consuming analysis in sections, organizations conduct research on the fly. Decision makers instantly get the information they need, allowing them to monitor internal and external changes in real time and make urgent decisions.
