Data integration, iPaaS and elastic.io - How it all fits together (Explainer)
The number of applications that companies use hasn't stopped growing in the past years – quite on the contrary, it is now "exploding" more than ever before. Application integration comes from the desire to avoid siloed information in this scenario, but oftentimes, this is done only on need basis, resulting in cumbersome point-to-point integrations that only grow in their complexity.
Integration platform as a service – or iPaaS for short – can help bring clarity and easy management for all your integrations. It provides a clean dashboard for monitoring and logging, and sophisticated tools for setting up any kinds of integration flows, while ready-to-use connectors for mainstream applications speed up integration projects considerably.
With this in mind, the elastic.io iPaaS is designed for both developers and citizen integrators. For the latter, it delivers a complete toolkit for application integration in a step-by-step guided user interface, while developers can use the Node.js and Java SDKs for custom development efforts.
