Impacts and Recommendations

  • As digitalization accelerates business transformation, business users are increasingly performing self-service tasks to integrate data and applications using iSaaS
  • Citizen integrators seek to perform integration tasks as a whole, and generally do not differentiate the processes of integrating data and applications, thus spurring application leaders to re-evaluate traditional integration practices
  • Demand for seamless integration patterns has driven iSaaS providers to offer citizen integrator tools that combine data and application integration for shared and sustainable benefits to support HIP capabilities
