When Liaison launched the Liaison ALLOY™ Platform earlier this year, I wrote in my blog that ALLOY was the first platform to “address integration and data management problems never before seen in the marketplace” and that it would fill “the gaps left by other solutions.”
Since then, we’ve talked a lot about why legacy integration solutions such as ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) and iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service) are not up to the challenges of today’s fast moving and complex data landscape. Understanding the shortcomings of these integration solutions is an important first step in determining what your enterprise’s integration approach needs to look like in the future.
To that end, we’ve recently put out two detailed pieces that speak directly to the pitfalls and shortcomings of legacy integration approaches:
- 5 Pitfalls of Self-Service Integration. Authored by me, this article contrasts the self-service integration model employed by iPaaS against the fully managed services model employed by dPaaS, the market category that the ALLOY Platform serves.
- Are Your Integration Tools Falling Short? This brief illustrates how traditional integration tools are proving themselves too unwieldy and resource intensive to keep pace with the high demands—and even higher expectations—of today’s data environment.
I invite you to take a look at both of these informative pieces and judge for yourself if your integration strategy is on the right track.
