The Hybrid Integration Platform: Can You Be in Business Without One?
An "unintegrated digital business" is simply an oxymoron. Digitalization does empower organizations to innovate and disrupt, but entails tackling a daunting array of application, data, APIs, mobile apps, ecosystems and "things" integration issues. An enterprisewide hybrid integration platform to support these challenges is becoming a business utility such as networks, email and ERP: a precondition to be in business for organizations of any kind.
