Hundreds of applications. Thousands of business processes. Millions of combinations. ONE iPaaS.

Evaluating the Options

Traditional iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service)

Traditional iPaaS solutions enable IT organizations to accelerate and centralize business process automation. They provide developers with a suite of cloud services enabling much more efficient development, execution and governance of integration flows connecting processes, services, applications and data.


  • Low total cost of ownership: Cost of integrations is significantly reduced as an iPaaS can improve developer productivity by 50% or more.
  • Time to value: Integration projects can be completed in days (or even hours) versus weeks or months for coded integrations.
  • Governance: iPaaS solutions provide features to meet corporate and regulatory standards for security and privacy
  • Flexibility: The organizations can rapidly modify automations and integrate new SaaS solutions.


  • Hiring and retaining technical resources: Traditional iPaaS solutions require a trained, technical staff. Integration specialists are well-compensated and in high demand, especially in the current labor market.
  • Limited agility and scalability: Since business process automation requires technical resources, IT becomes the limiting factor on growth.

Scalability Rating: 4/5


Advanced iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service)

Advanced iPaaS solutions provide additional capabilities beyond those of the traditional iPaas. An advanced iPaaS solution creates intelligent repeatability powered by AI and machine learning (ML), has prebuilt applications with built-in best practices, and offers business process expertise. They also provide the ability for business users, not just technical teams, to build, deploy and manage business process automation, which allow all members of the organization to promote agility and automation.


  • Lower total cost of ownership: As expensive development resources are no longer required to automate all processes.
  • Faster time to value: Automation is faster than traditional iPaaS solutions due not only to advanced capabilities for development but to self-service for business users. Business teams don’t need to wait for IT resources to become available to automate processes.
  • Greater agility and scalability: By enabling citizen integration and providing a meaningful starting point, an advanced iPaaS solution empowers everyone in the organization to promote agility and automation as needed.
  • Increased innovation: Optimizing the efficiency of automation and integration of new applications reduces the cost and risk perception of innovation.


  • Business user training: While advanced iPaaS training requirements are far less rigorous than traditional iPaaS, there are a greater number of users requiring training

Scalability Rating: 5/5


Advanced iPaaS is the answer for modern organizations

For fast-growing businesses, or indeed any business that wishes to compete in a post-digital economy, an iPaaS is the best option to automate business processes at scale. An iPaaS not only accelerates the integration of new SaaS technologies into business processes, but helps to create seamless, unified customer experiences, enabling business teams to obtain real-time data and aggregate data from multiple sources for analytics.

While a traditional iPaaS will provide these benefits, these solutions are more limited because they are designed to enable the IT function to address integration problems across the enterprise in a way that maximizes the productivity of technical resources.

An advanced iPaaS enables everyone in the organization to proactively address integration problems across the enterprise and drive continual business performance improvement in a way that maximizes organizational agility. The greater democratization of integration tools and skills leads to improved automation, analytics, speed, and accuracy of key business processes, which accelerates growth, fosters innovation, and drives a competitive advantage.
