Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) delivers cloud services that address a wide range of integration and governance scenarios. Gartner predicts by 2016, at least 35% of all large organizations worldwide will be using one or more iPaaS offerings in some form. Businesses looking to leverage the greater flexibility and faster time to market delivered by such offerings in this fledgling market must make note of the benefits a true cloud-native iPaaS delivers, and be aware adoption pitfalls.
