The trends in in the cloud including mass adoption of SaaS, API proliferation and the new breed of mobile consumer are driving a new set of integration challenges. SaaS makes it very easy for application decisions to fly under the rader and create new silos of data.
This talk covers the problem, the drivers and how integration PaaS (iPaaS) can help.

  1. 1. Cloud is the new siloSolving emerging integration challenges Ross Mason, MuleSoft @rossmason
  2. 2. About Me
  3. 3. Emergence of Cloud SilosEnterprise have spent 15 years breaking down internalsilos, but a new set of cloud silos is emerging SaaS Cloud Platforms • Driven by business • Driven by developers • “Solution” based integration • Custom point-to-point integration (e.g., Cast Iron, Boomi) Growing need for platform approach to integration 3
  4. 4. Trends driving integration challenges SaaS / Cloud APIs Mobile Applications
  5. 5. IS THERE AN INTEGRATIONPROBLEM?
  6. 6. SaaS•  Applications used to be hard to consume –  Evaluate App –  Make a decision –  Engage the vendor –  Create rollout plan –  Create infrastructure –  Deploy Application•  SaaS is Dangerously easy to consume –  “Fragment your data with one easy CC swipe”

  11. 11. Metcalfe’s Law The WebApplication API Mobile
  12. 12. Machine Communication•  The web is an awesome communication platform•  Applications hold the data - the currency of communication•  The API make information available to consumers•  The mobile device is the new consumption channel
  13. 13. What’s missing? Nice accent, is Please stop that Scotch- calling me Romanian? The WebApplication API Mobile
  14. 14. The Missing Piece•  All this infrastructure is limited without conversation*•  Integration drives conversation•  The exchange creates new information of greater value to the consumer* This is machine to machine ‘conversation’ in which I include dissemination of information
  15. 15. The Conversation… Data ConversationCommunication Consumer
