The Integration Implications of the Internet of Things in a Connected World – A THINKstrategies Whitepaper Sponsored by SnapLogic
The world is becoming increasingly connected via the ‘cloud’ and through the explosion of mobile devices and remotely accessible objects, ranging from household appliances to industrial components. In today’s increasingly mobile, social and ‘on-demand’ world, immediate access to timely information is essential to quickly respond to changing customer needs, widening competitive threats, and new market openings.
Capturing the data being generated from this rapidly expanding universe of endpoints and pulling that data together to optimize business operations and capitalize on new market opportunities has become a key ‘Big Data’ challenge. In the same way traditional enterprise applications and data center systems have fallen short in meeting these new demands, traditional application and data integration technology is being challenged to keep pace with today’s changing business requirements.
The promise of the ‘Internet of Things’, combined with the growing demand for more efficient and seamless business processes, are driving escalating demands for more flexible, powerful and cost-effective integration capabilities.
THINKstrategies believes a new set of integration platforms and tools are necessary to satisfy these escalating needs. Click here to read our latest whitepaper, sponsored by SnapLogic, which explains how a new generation cloud-based integration solutions that can address both simple and complex enterprise IT requirements can fill this void, and make it possible to reap the business benefits of today’s connected world.
