Cloud integration services emerge strong

Sponsored by SearchBusinessAnalytics

The cloud integration services market is one of the fastest growing segments of the platform-as-a-service market. Dozens of emerging and established vendors are jockeying for position in this emergent space, staking out different market segments. Geared to line-of-business developers and power users, cloud integration services offer faster, better and easier ways to integrate applications and data sources that run both in the cloud and in corporate data centers.

Cloud integration services may not offer all the bells and whistles of traditional on-premises software, but they provide enough functionality to meet the majority of business requirements. Offered as a subscription service with free trials, published pricing and automatic upgrades, these services offer a “frictionless” buying and design experience that appeals to a new generation of business-technology users who embrace self-service computing. This report shows surprisingly strong adoption of cloud data integration tools despite the fact that a majority of organizations still run most of their applications in their own data centers.
