Impacts and Recommendations

  • Several integration technology providers are AI-enabling their platforms to improve ease of use, expand their potential audience to users less-skilled on integration, and differentiate from their competitors
  • As integration specialists are in limited supply and expensive, application leaders in charge of integration, and under pressure to deliver more projects faster and at a lower cost, are prospects targeted for using AI in integration
  • Digital integrator technologies — built to apply AI techniques to resolve complex integration problems — will evolve to discover, learn and apply integration processing to make business solutions work together
