As customers’ habits change, business models evolve and innovation become a crucial success factor. During this digital transformation information must become an asset – not a problem. Previously only accessible to larger companies, there are now smart and cost-effective integration solutions that keep information together and free up time for innovation in small to medium-sized companies.
With a modern integration solution, virtually all stakeholders and subsystems that are or need to be part of the business can be linked together. Business efficiencies are immediate when work tasks are automated and new sources of information added in real-time.
The importance of process over product
Innovation is not just about developing new products. Innovation is frequently about developing a new business model, streamlining processes or offering new services.
“In order to succeed, you need a solution that connects the company’s various information sources and subsystems. Instead of a large number of direct integrations between different systems, a modern integration solution creates a coherent information flow, ”says Björn-Ola Kronander, business architect at Connect Companies, the company that owns and sells Blue Integrator.
The winners are those that manage change effectively
Through the deployment of an integration engine, an organization is in a position to not only cope with IT change but to immediately benefit from it. Streamlining, developing new services and keeping large amounts of information together becomes easier and eradicates the need for a time intensive, manual information transfer. A modern integration solution also frees up time for innovation and research and development.
“If you don´t use an integration engine and instead make the integrations directly, it will be extremely costly and undoubtedly difficult to manage over time. It also creates an environment that is sensitive to change and will require extensive manual intervention moving forward.”
“Today, companies are required to move quickly from concept to implementation of a new business model, service or product. Taking this into account, a smart integration solution can make a huge difference,” concludes Björn-Ola.
