Cloud Integration Advice

I just came across a great post from a “software insider” who’s point of view I respect. A couple of months back Forrester’s Ray Wang (rwang0 to his 2000+ Twitter followers) recommended the following advice when you’re considering a data integration as a service solution – focus on:

  • Data mapping;
  • Business process orchestration; and
  • Quality of service.

I’d also add vendor vision, strength of the underlying platform, multitenancy, and viability…but I digress.

Ray’s bottom line is key:

“The successful adoption of SaaS solutions will transform usage from purpose built point solutions to integration into mission critical processes.  The result – SaaS integration will emerge as a key discipline in the overall enterprise app strategies of enterprises who seek to manage a portfolio of provisioned services.”

 Is data integration the key to ultimate SaaS application adoption and success? Read the full post here and let me know what you think.
