The field of B2B integration software and solutions is not new. Over the years, it has progressed significantly. Here are a few of the different integration delivery mechanisms you may want to consider, along with some factors to help you decide the right software for your business.
You may find that the capabilities you need are already provided by your integration tool. Your options may need to be reconsidered if that is the case. Options include:
On-Premises - In-house integration software installed on an organization's servers
Hosted Private Cloud/SaaS - Integration software installed on a remote server
Cloud Computing - Software that integrates applications over the Internet
Hybrid Cloud - Functionality combining two or more of the above
A company's data security is always paramount, regardless of whether it puts its applications on the cloud or keeps them on-premises. Some businesses, however, who operate in highly regulated industries, already know that they must house their applications on-premise.
In a hosted private cloud, your data servers are hosted in the cloud of a company that provides Software as a Service (SaaS). In other words, you have an outside team of experts managing your platform for you.
There is one major difference between cloud computing and on-premises software. Unlike an on-premises environment, where the company hosts everything itself, a cloud environment has a third-party service provider power the platform.
With cloud computing, an application is hosted offsite via virtual technology.
Lastly, you have the option of hybrid cloud. You can see from the line-up that this choice is a mix of on-premise solutions and hosted cloud solutions. This one is more reliable as compared to on-premises and the others.
