Integrate to Accelerate: Evolving Your Integration Strategy to Extend Beyond IT

These days, integration is no longer optional, but this ubiquity can hide the massive and rapid change which integration is undergoing. In fact, a variety of forces are coming together to change the way businesses integrate across their organization and community of business partners. According to leading analyst firm Gartner, in the next few years, we will see new approaches to integration being adopted by central IT and lines of business, increasing demand for more agile and hybrid deployments, and innovations such as analytics and API networks.

In Gartner's recent report Predicts 2014: Nexus of Forces Drives Evolution of Integration Strategy, we can see how these forces are fundamentally changing the way businesses integrate today and tomorrow. Consider these strategic planning assumptions from the report:
* By 2017, in large organizations at least 65% of new integration flows will be developed outside the control of IT departments.
* By 2018, more than 40% of large organizations will have established a hybrid integration platform.
* By 2017, 60% of new integration projects will leverage embedded analytics.
* By 2018, the 10 largest B2B networks will have evolved into API networks.
* By 2018, electronic B2B interactions will outnumber non-electronic ones.

What does this mean for your business, and how can you gain a competitive advantage while responding proactively to the challenges ahead? Watch this webinar to hear Gartner analyst Benoit Lheureux's perspective on the forces driving the evolution of integration strategies, and get key recommendations to ensure your success.
