Modern Business Integration

Modern business, no matter the size it is a complicated affair. Even small businesses utilize hundreds or tens of thousands of marketing, business and operational software to function.

These applications should work seamlessly to support the outcomes that are crucial to the business. This is the aim of business integration, which focuses on connecting and enabling everyone in the ecosystem to function effectively as a single unit.

The proper design is vital to an effective business integration. In many cases, an integration is developed using a coding style which makes it difficult to change the design. The wrong design choices could result in a system which is difficult to manage and maintain, and also costly to run.

In the past, business integrations predominantly focused on the integration of IT software and systems, such as CRM and ERP solutions. This type of integration, known as application integration, is usually carried out through APIs or other software to facilitate the connection between systems. These types of integrations are usually restricted in scope and require a dedicated technical management team at the site to manage and maintain.

The key to success in modern business integration is an approach that is more holistic and concentrates on business service integration. This is accomplished by identifying the business services required and mapping those to the appropriate technology. It also involves the creation of the required components for integration, including connectors, data mappings, and an efficient testing and deployment process within a controlled environment. Then, a monitoring process and optimization is implemented to ensure that the business integration is in line with its goals.
