Integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) has become an important element in a broad-based enterprise integration strategy. Typically, very strong for SaaS integration, iPaaS platforms can address a wide range of integration needs. Around some of iPaaS, vendors are developing product families that include data integration, API management, B2B integration, and more. iPaaS may not meet all your integration needs, but it can provide a strong base of integration capability.

At Torry Harris, we know when to use iPaaS and how to build rock solid iPaaS integration flows that drive your business process excellence and efficiency. As integration specialists, we know the strengths and weaknesses not only of iPaaS, but of the landscape of integration options. That gives us a unique ability to lead your iPaaS implementation while ensuring that it fits well within your integration strategy's need for rapid time-to-value and continuous business change.

What we do for iPaaS Implementation

We help in...

Ensuring you acquire the right iPaaS platform for your unique set of applications, technical environments, technical skills, and business goals. To fulfill the iPaaS portion of your overall integration strategy (which Torry Harris can also help with), we compare a detailed set of evaluation criteria to a range of iPaaS products, ensuring you get the benefit of iPaaS as a seamless, cohesive, and efficient part of the whole strategy.
Establishing integration patterns for the many different scenarios your iPaaS integrations must fulfill, ranging from SaaS and legacy integration to integration flows behind strategic APIs to data pipelines that feed machine learning and intelligence.
Configuring your iPaaS platform, your applications, and your integration delivery environment for rapid-cycle delivery automation and control across multiple departments and solution teams. We set up connections between iPaaS, APIs, data integration and other elements of your integration strategy, including connections down into legacy apps in your data center.
Building rock solid, robust integration flows and exception processes, so that when applications or partners send bad data into your integration, your business processes catch and resolve errors automatically (if possible) or alert your staff for rapid resolution (when necessary).

Our approach to iPaaS Implementation

Central to the benefits of many iPaaS platforms, is their large connector libraries, ready for connections to a wide range of SaaS apps, cloud platforms, collaboration tools, data streams, and other digital assets. Combined with simpler programming and cloud-based operations, iPaaS has earned a prominent place in enterprise integration. But Torry Harris knows both the benefits and limitations of iPaaS, so our approach ensures:

  • Your iPaaS is not an island unto itself, but part of a multi-pronged enterprise integration strategy.
  • The processes, tools, and configurations around your iPaaS are designed not just for rapid delivery of integration solutions, but for ongoing rapid change that fosters constantly adjusting business models, applications, and customer experiences in response to competitive pressures.
  • Integration patterns drive consistency of iPaaS flow design and implementation, which in turn reduces learning curves, speeds delivery, and leads to more efficient and reliable production operations.
  • Multiple options for project structure, including fixed cost, integration factory, and ongoing managed operations.
