As many businesses continue their digital transformation, more data is being accessed across multiple platforms. In a 2018 study, IBM concluded that as many as 85% of businesses are operating in multiple cloud environments with data shared across many platforms and networks. The study also notes that 59% of businesses reported that separate business units had engaged with various cloud environments, creating a de facto multi-cloud environment. IBM’s findings highlight how successful companies can position themselves for greater competitive advantage with more integration among the many disparate platforms.
Companies benefit not only from cost savings but greater visibility into their data and results by consolidating multiple applications and working toward greater integration. According to InformationWeek, integrating multiple systems and being able to look at data together in one place can help an organization execute more initiatives at scale.
A scalable API is crucial for any resource management solution, as it allows an organization to build its own integrations on its API project management, HR, accounting, and CRM tools. With a scalable API, businesses can have custom integrations that connect their SaaS tools, reduce double entry and automate their processes. Another important piece is the resource management solution having flexible architecture built around bridging resource management with popular PPM tools integrations, integrating their current system into the resource management solution with ease.
