How many cloud applications and services does your business utilize daily? A few, dozens, maybe hundreds?

These cloud applications and cloud services help you to manage your businesses efficiently. However, as most business organizations use several cloud applications to manage different business processes, transferring data from one application to another becomes inconvenient. Moving data from one system to another also leads to a wastage of time. Additionally, these data are old and are prone to manual errors during the transfer.

Businesses need to automate these processes and share data between these applications in a seamless manner. This process requires the applications to be interconnected, which is commonly known as integration. But using traditional forms of integration such as vendor-built point-to-point integration lacks flexibility, is labor-intensive and at times fails to just keep up.

As your business grows in size, every company needs an efficient integration strategy that would help them to holistically address the growing complexities of cloud application by using automation. This is where the iPaaS or Integration Platform as a Service comes to the rescue.

iPaaS – A data integration solution

In order to answer What is iPaaS, we’ll try to be as simple as possible. iPaaS is a single platform that facilitates a connection between different cloud-based applications, technologies, and systems. It standardizes how data follows between different applications and helps to streamline business processes. You can use iPaaS to share data to several applications at a time.

The platform could also be used to perform other complex functions such as transforming, filtering, or combining data from various systems. The platform is also capable of initiating actions based on the data such as sending an invoice once a project is approved.

Here are some more ways in which iPaaS helps businesses

Standardization of Integration

iPaaS would help to standardize the existing applications and new applications that would be added in the future by integrating them into the enterprise. This helps to move data from one application to another very swiftly and also provides the required integration functionality.

The standardizing application implies that the iPaaS platform would screen, keep up with, and update processes across different applications, which are continually being added, erased or changed. Using the right iPaaS software helps the technical engineers and data consumers to effectively construct, supervise, and efficiently manage integration.

Enhances Customer Experience

Customers are always on the lookout for business organizations that would provide them with quality service when they communicate with different departments within a company. To provide quality service, all departments of an organization need to have access to the same customer data. The iPaaS platform helps to synchronize customer data across all departments of a company enabling the customers to receive a much more personalized and consistent service.  Being able to provide such personalized services makes their customers feel more valued and helps the companies to retain them in the long run.

Automation of Workflow

One of the most important benefits of iPaaS is that it enables the automation of business operations. There are various generic business processes such as data entry, that are performed manually in several companies. As a result, these processes tend to be time-consuming, error-prone, and repetitive. Incorporating an automation process thus helps a business organization to save both cost and time and reduces errors in data. Using iPaaS helps in automating these business processes and develops a workflow that is free of error.

Prevent Data Breaches

In today’s generation, data is considered to be the most valuable resource that a business might own. With increasing cybersecurity threats, the leak of confidential data has become a growing concern in business organizations. Prevention of such data breaches requires a secure environment. Integration of iPaaS helps business organizations significantly reduce their risk against cybersecurity threats. The iPaaS platforms are monitored round-the-clock by the service provider so they can stay cautious of any data breaches. Moreover, iPaaS providers secured authentication produced and verification systems for information streams for the whole business environment.

Enables Agility

Manually transferring data from one system to another restricts a business organization from being agile. Using iPaaS enables a company to become more agile. The agility of businesses addresses the ability of a business to change cost productively and quickly regarding changes in the ecosystem of a business. Using iPaaS helps businesses to integrate data, edit them and delete them whenever required. Moreover, businesses could perform these actions without requiring permission from providers and without any extra cost.

In Conclusion

Whether you have an established business or you are planning to establish a company, having iPaaS is an absolute necessity in today’s age. iPaas would help you to operate and expand your businesses effortlessly. It also helps to reduce complexities that are associated with a growing business and also helps to ensure that a business can provide excellent service to its customers. These benefits have made iPaaS immensely popular among SMEs and large organizations.
