According to a recent IDG Cloud Computing Survey, the average IT environment is increasingly becoming cloud-based. Cloud is no longer seen primarily as a cost reduction strategy — now it’s become an enabler of the digital business model and is the foundation to digital transformation.

One of the most widely used cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications is Salesforce — and for many companies, it is core to their business operations. However, in order for organizations to harness the full potential of their data and their investment in key apps like Salesforce, they need a cloud integration platform that can connect Salesforce to everything else in the IT landscape — from legacy systems to other cloud applications and even IoT devices and data lakes.

Salesforce’s hallmark annual conference, Dreamforce, is fast approaching and integration will be front and center.

Integration has always been critical for Salesforce customers. And that importance was highlighted earlier this year when Salesforce acquired MuleSoft.

Salesforce founder and co-chief executive officer Marc Benioff has publicly stated that his company will use Mulesoft’s on-premise, developer-centric platform to expand its market share of the world’s largest companies by addressing integration scenarios needing extensive, laborious customization and code development.

For the most part, these applications are integrated ad hoc, if at all.

Gartner has an adoption curve that it applies to emerging technologies. The curve has five stages:

  • Innovation trigger
  • Peak of inflated expectations
  • Trough of disillusionment
  • Slope of enlightenment
  • Plateau of productivity.

The concept of integration falls somewhere between the “trough of disillusionment” and the “slope of enlightenment.” Integration as a technology has been around for a while. Most people have heard the word enough times that they think they know what it means — until they are asked to define it.
