With businesses adopting more and more cloud applications, mobile apps, and devices, integration has never been more important. Integrating these apps and tools with the rest of the systems is the key to a connected enterprise - one that supports real-time responsiveness, instant collaboration, and streamlined innovation.

For businesses looking to gain all of the benefits of a connected enterprise, while also simplifying administration and accelerating time to market, they’re a game-changer. They’re fueling a hybrid approach to integration—one that combines on-premises integration with iPaaS to respond to business requirements faster- but that’s just the start. Read on and discover five key ways cloud-based integration platforms are transforming the way organizations integrate, making innovation simpler than ever before.
