Top 10 Pitfalls of Point to Point Integration to Avoid in the Cloud
While integration isn’t necessarily a new problem, the unique challenges of integrating in the cloud require a new approach. Many enterprises, however, are still using point to point solutions to address their cloud integration needs. In order to tackle cloud integration successfully, we need to move beyond point to point integration and avoid repeating the same mistakes. In this talk, Ross will explore the top 10 pitfalls of point to point integration to avoid repeating in the cloud.

Time: Thursday, November 10, 9:00AM
Location: Santa Clara Convention Center – Santa Clara, CA
Presenter: Ross Mason, CTO and founder, MuleSoft

Market surveys consistently show integration to be the number one challenge organizations face in SaaS and Cloud adoption. According to a recent report from Gartner, an entirely new sector will emerge to address this issue, defined as integration platform as a service (iPaaS). By 2016, Gartner has predicted that at least 35% of all large and midsize organizations worldwide will be using one or more iPaaS offerings in some form. Mule iON is the first iPaaS to address this challenge by providing an easy way to integrate SaaS applications in the cloud with on-premise systems. Using a graphical design environment, users can build integration applications, leveraging off-the-shelf cloud connectors, and deploy them with one click to Mule iON.
