Page 2 of 18 Gartner, Inc. | G00271876 – Source for Below Aging infrastructure: Many companies have investments in legacy integration products at the end of their product life and lack the budget or desire to invest in costly replacements.
■ Innovation: Many companies need new capabilities — such as analytics, APIs, e-invoicing, corroboration, and compliance — that are often not easily addressed with existing solutions.
■ Priority: Many companies would rather invest limited in-house resources in IT projects involving CRM, SaaS, mobile or IoT rather than basic integration.
■ Complexity: Many companies (rightfully) consider doing integration to be challenging and timeconsuming and, therefore, seek advice on the viability and options for outsourcing.
■ Time-to-deployment: Even if the budget is available for integration technology and skills, many companies find service providers more capable of meeting time-to-deployment needs.
Application program interface (API) is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. An API specifies how software components should interact and APIs are used when programming graphical user interface (GUI) components.
