Analytics SaaS Companies Simplify Processes with CloudHub iPaaS
Analytics based software as a service (SaaS) companies such as GoodData and Tableau are faced with the challenge of integration everyday. As their customer base expands, it is crucial for their applications to work with existing customer solutions. From web analytics to business intelligence, SaaS vendors must ensure they not only provide the proper analytics reporting tools for their users, but also provide the data their customers need in a convenient and easily manageable way. This process, called data science, seeks a reliable method to process big data, extract value from it, and supply customers with usable information regarding their enterprise. Cloud integration is a way for the BI analytics SaaS providers to focus more on the things that matter - innovating their core application and driving business forward - and less time dealing with the issues of data integration.
Integration for Analytics SaaS Providers is an Issue
Integration is the top concern for most software as a service providers. Customers have existing systems with which they expect applications from online analytics service providers to work with seamlessly. One study showed that 90% of respondents consider integration to be the number one sales challenge with SaaS applications. Another 94% of those who responded to the survey recognize integration as a top concern. Moreover, 85% find integration to be the most time consuming element of customer implementation. Analytics companies need a way to ensure their applications work seamlessly with their customers’ existing applications in order to drive business forward.
Trying to take the problem of integration into their own hands, many analytics SaaS providers have tried custom integration. The issue, however, is that custom integration is pricey, difficult, and fragile. Custom integration leaves room for errors, leading to a higher number of support tickets and as a result, additional support and maintenance costs. Furthermore, because of complexity in implementation, building on your own limits your ability to diagnose issues. All of these errors can result in inaccurate BI data and inefficient business processes, preventing your organization from moving forward.
CloudHub Allows for Integration Quickly
A cloud integration platform as a service (iPaaS) such as CloudHub from MuleSoft, provides the means necessary for SaaS analytics companies to simplify the process of integrating data from one service to another, seamlessly. Having your data in one place and available in real time for analysis is crucial, and CloudHub makes it possible.
