In recent blog posts, we outlined how software vendors can meet rising customer demand for fast, agile integration by partnering with an integration vendor. And we addressed key technology characteristics that independent software vendors (ISVs) should look for in an integration partner.
But integration technology is only part of the equation. Another critical consideration for application providers is the experience, scope and track record of an integration vendor’s partner program.

It’s an accepted truth that applications deployed one or two decades ago simply can’t deliver the performance, agility or efficiency necessary to keep up with the demands of today’s changing business climate. As such, smart organizations are rebuilding their application portfolios and migrating to the cloud.
At Slalom, we partner with companies like Boomi and our mutual customers to push the boundaries of what’s possible — together. We provide strategic guidance and technical expertise for companies large and small, across the U.S.

Retailers running Oracle NetSuite have a sound enterprise resource planning (ERP) foundation for financial, inventory and order management. NetSuite also provides ecommerce, point-of-sale (POS) and customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities, but many retailers elect to use best-of-breed software for those functions. Often, third-party marketing automation software will also be in place.
That introduces challenges in how merchants can meet rising customer expectations for a seamless omnichannel experience. Integration that connects NetSuite with disparate systems is mandatory for retailers to gain a unified 360-degree customer view and deliver personalized engagement across all channels.

In a recent blog post, we talked about how organizations increasingly look for ease of integration when selecting software applications. They want to speed return on investment by quickly connecting new applications across their hybrid, best-of-breed IT environments.
That poses a challenge for independent software vendors (ISVs). To address it, some software companies invest in an in-house integration team to custom-code connectivity, but that means high cost and time-consuming manual work.

The sales landscape has changed for independent software vendors (ISVs). Customers no longer buy applications based strictly on traditional characteristics such as functionality and scalability.
With software as a service (SaaS) applications becoming the norm, ease of integration has emerged as a key consideration for organizations as they assess their software options. Companies want new apps to plug and play across diverse environments of best-of-breed cloud and on-premise systems. The last thing they want is a complex and months-long integration project.

IT modernization is on a fast track in Western Australia. Backed by an AUD$3 billion investment from the state government, an initiative promises to digitally transform how Western Australian government and businesses operate over the next 10 years.
The stakes are huge. Western Australia’s core economic engine, the mining industry, has been in gradual decline since it transitioned from a capital construction phase to a production phase in 2013.
The state government’s NextGov-ICT program is designed to save the state up to AUD$80 million a year, in part by transitioning from 60 standalone data centers to a hybrid cloud IT architecture.
