This month we caught up with Sunil Hans, Adeptia Director who’s spent the majority of his career with state-of-the-art data communication technologies and telecommunication network solutions. In his view, everything business can be made better with the right integration platform.
Let’s know about his prescient take on technology integration and its limitless potential:
Being one of the active participants in the IT industry you have helped many companies solve the trickiest integration issues. What are some of the common challenges that enterprises across the globe are facing across industries?
IT complexity has increased manifolds with the rise in IT consumerization. A problem which was not there before 15 or 20 years. At this point of time, enterprises were having only 3-4 business applications that need to be connected with 5-10 external business partners for electronic data interchange. However, cloud-based innovations are changing all this. Currently, enterprises have a business system for every different business operation. These technologies have different architectural model and data storage format and they don’t converse with other cloud and on-premise applications. Enterprise IT ecosystem is getting more complex, silos and ‘islands of automation” steadily decrease the pace of business.
Traditional IT integration solutions no longer hold when the future depends upon innovation. Enterprise IT integration addresses this need and helps enterprises in bringing data to the right place at the right time.
What are the top trends entering the technology integration market?
AI will be used for data integration purposes. Integration tools will further evolve for supporting Big Data and other analytics purposes.
How do You See Digital Transformation Shaking up the Industry?
Digital transformation has started to move from theory to practice. New innovations are poised to change business operations in ways we have never seen before. At the same time, enterprises will face massive problems in aligning new and old technologies with organizational goals. They will need end-to-end hybrid integration to combine cloud and on-premise technologies make them work in tandem.
What integration capabilities will help enterprises standout and differentiate themselves?
Large File Data Ingestion for data streaming and processing into data lakes
Self-service data integration capability for faster onboarding and data interchange
AI led any-to-any data mapping capability
What are the top three mistakes committed by enterprises with respect to enterprise integration?
Enterprises often find themselves sitting on the wrong horse after investing in an integration solution.
They realize that the integration solution has hidden license fees for connecting with specific applications.
Many integration solutions have their marketing language around ‘ease of use,’ but they entail heavy coding and developer support.
They haphazardly select a solution that is ideal for the cloud-based solution.
As a result, they face same old problems in integrating applications which they had with conventional home-grown approaches. Enterprises should look for a solution that addresses their integration needs in simple and efficient ways. They should look for a hybrid integration solution that works for all uses cases and scenarios.
