Bridging the gap

Today’s organizations typically have a wide variety of information systems. Different lines of business and even different departments have different applications centered on specific types of information. So, most users are faced with a CRM system, a financial system, an ERP system and finally an Enterprise Content Management system, just to name a few. These systems are collectively sold as ways of increasing value. But the mythical story that IT solutions drive value (read profit) only occurs when the process of sharing information is optimized across the various lines of business, departments and divisions of an organization.

This is a widely recognized problem and many IT departments have sought to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by designing complex integrations between these systems. They realize that taking care of a good information exchange between the various systems is a necessary task. Unfortunately, this task is often where they spend a lot of time and money.

In the past there where 3 typical methods of integration; system to system, interface to system and manual. While all three have their own specific benefits, they also come with their own downsides, e.g.: high costs, high technical knowledge and time-consuming.
