Integration Connectors: Pay for the Platform and not the Application Endpoints

Every integration platform offers a vast range of out-of-box connectors to enable businesses to connect their applications or data sources. In other words, connectors bring the entire business ecosystem together and solve the complex integration use-cases.

An enterprise generally needs connectors for either of the following –

• To send and/or receive data from applications or data sources
• To connect to a specific application using a specific protocol and exchange data using a specific data format

Most of the integration platform providers in the market offer out-of-box connectors that let you seamlessly connect to applications hosted in a hybrid environment and make your life easy! The humongous business data has led to the emergence of multiple applications operating in the business landscape. Thus, deploying custom connectors to cater to any specific integration scenarios won’t be effective when it comes to tackling complex integration cases involving multiple applications running at the same time. These applications form the backbone of a business; hence effective communication between the applications is needed to ensure business continuity.

Let’s look at a business scenario to understand this better. Imagine a scenario where prospect account is created in Salesforce (CRM tool) as an incoming lead. This record needs to be created in My SQL (the internal database), a welcome email needs to be sent to the lead through Pardot (Marketing automation tool) and the sales team need to be apprised about the newest addition through an email (Outlook). Such kind of business scenario needs the integration between CRM, Marketing Automation, Database, and Email. To handle this, one needs to deploy multiple application connectors to make sure the whole workflow gets automated and merely deploying a specialized connector wouldn’t be enough.

Generally, the current integration platforms in the market come with a commercial usage license fee that is charged basis per connector. As the business needs are ever-growing, the value proposition offered in such a model diminishes when an enterprise looks out to buy more connectors to integrate their large number of applications. This puts up a restriction and elongates the integration process as an enterprise have to procure individual connectors every time it plans to scale up its applications environment.
