Smart leaders understand that data is the new currency of business, driving innovation and delivering a competitive edge to companies that use it effectively. They know that unifying data and liberating it from its silos drives insights. But for too many companies, insights remain elusive because integrating data between businesses and an ever-increasing number of cloud environments and existing applications is incredibly complex and time-consuming.
Enterprises have limited resources, which makes it a struggle to complete integration projects, and that can lead to setbacks that allow competitors to make headway. The right cloud-based integration and data management strategy can make it possible to innovate and work seamlessly with customers and partners, but it must include both technology and expertise — and the latter is often in short supply.
With a future-proof platform like the Liaison ALLOY™ Platform, which was designed from the ground up to address the particular challenges of today’s data-driven environment, enterprises gain unified integration and data management capabilities that enable them to connect any number of disparate data sources and to manage increasing data volume and variety. ALLOY is a great alternative to 20th-century Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) technologies, or even to newer integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) solutions, both of which are built on aging technical foundations and still require DIY development as connections proliferate.
Unlike providers of legacy ESB and typical iPaaS solutions, Liaison takes a new approach to solving the integration and data management challenges enterprises currently face. One of the additional benefits customers receive with the Liaison ALLOY Platform’s approach is access to managed services that allow the in-house IT team to skip the integration learning curve by leveraging Liaison’s 15-plus years of experience. With managed services, customers also free up scarce IT resources for strategic tasks.
