Integration Belongs in the Cloud
Well run businesses constantly seek product and market expansion to grow while simultaneously hunting for new productivity gains. Such opposing forces present significant challenges to today’s Information Technology (IT) organisations. IT organisations are strained to serve their business in strategic ways due to costly requirements to “keep current” with existing investments. The emerging Cloud era provides an opportunity for IT to rethink information ownership and responsibilities, enabling IT to shift from tactical-to-strategic, and delivering new savings that pay for future innovations.
The speed and accuracy of information flows throughout a business and its ecosystem of business partners is essential and foundational to business success. The unique and ever-changing characteristics that define each and every relationship between systems and businesses, makes data integration inherently complex, costly and continuous. Successful integration is proving to be a critical dependency for true process improvement and for achieving ROI from major investments, including ERP.
With proven integration capabilities, millions of pre-wired relationships, and built-in support for diverse, global standards, GXS Trading Grid is the world’s largest integration cloud. When customers move integration to the Cloud, they eliminate the cost of implementing and maintaining expensive integration infrastructures, gain speed-to-market advantages accessing powerful, elastic services to enable, transform, enrich and track information, and improve business performance with real-time operational intelligence.
