How to Implement a Hybrid Integration Platform That is Truly “Hybrid”
Download this complimentary report for implementing a Hybrid Integration platform.
Large and global organizations are reshaping their integration strategy to
enable digital transformation. To support these efforts, application leaders
responsible for API and application integration should move toward an
integration platform that is hybrid along four different dimensions.
Read this report to:
- Take into account all four dimensions of the HIP (not just the deployment model) when designing an integration platform strategy aimed at fully addressing your organization’s evolving requirements.
- Implement your HIP by selecting and aggregating the combination of cloud-native and on-premises integration platforms that best support your requirements, but beware of vendors’ “HIP-washing” – that is, the attempt to depict a collection of architecturally inconsistent products as a HIP.
- Plan for an incremental implementation of your HIP that is driven by business priorities, and available skills and budget. Consider that you will likely need to perform some assembly work if you want to achieve some degree of operational consistency across the building blocks of your HIP.
