Cloud Growth will Require Integration

Just back from my sister’s wedding – rain and clouds unfortunately, but a good time was had by all. Not surprisingly, my inbox is also filled with clouds. Here are a couple of articles I thought were worth sharing:

Of course this cloud momentum bodes well for data integration as an on-demand service. One of the vendors in this space recently published a quote from Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Cloud Computing which sums it up nicely:

“The rapid adoption of cloud computing and SaaS-based functionality during the past few years, combined with increasing demand from end users for improved integration of business data and processes between the cloud and their on-premise applications, has created an acute need for solutions to address cloud computing/SaaS integration…Companies across all industries and geographies that use cloud-computing based business software functionality will…want to integrate that functionality with on-premise applications and data to improve multi-enterprise process integrity. Doing so can save money (e.g., by reducing manual data entry using a browser) and generate revenue (e.g., by improving customer satisfaction and competitive advantage by ensuring that master customer data is automatically synchronized between cloud-based and on-premise business software).”
