Enterprise Integration platforms come with a hefty license fee and offer a comprehensive suite of features such as connectivity, integration patterns, monitoring, deployment, security etc. Most of the time, small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) are struggling to have proper integration budgets in place and sometimes they need basic integration functionality and not the full range of features offered by an enterprise platform. Due to lack of alternate options, these SMBs oscillate between using either an enterprise-grade platform or open source platforms/frameworks to manage their cloud, on-premises, and hybrid integration requirements.
DXchange Integration Cloud offers a cloud-native hybrid integration platform and offers a value proposition for the growing need of enterprises. It offers plenty of features which are not just only suitable for the enterprise integration needs, but good enough to give a strong push to their overall digital transformation journey. Here are the few reasons why you need to consider making a switch to DXchange integration cloud from your current strategy –
1. Save on Implementation Costs and Delays – Small and mid-size businesses have largely relied on open source integration platforms/frameworks to build their integration solutions as their budgets are limited and an enterprise-grade integration platform comes with a commercial license which is unbearable to an SMB enterprises, so implementing an open-source platform comes as an easiest and cost-effective means.
However, implementing an open-source platform comes with its share of problems. For instance, it takes a dedicated IT team/staff to build integration solutions for connecting various endpoints/applications. The integration takes a good amount of time for its foundation and triggers unnecessary delays in the project go-live. Moreover, because of the involvement of manpower, the implementation costs go higher with the open-source platform.
DXchange Integration platform provides a cost-effective, no-code enterprise-grade platform which can quickly help with your integration requirements. It saves time as well as costs and proves efficient in the long run.
2. Pay for What you Use – In some scenarios, enterprises have taken a license for an enterprise grade integration platform to address the business needs. Such a platform is comprehensive and comes with a wide range of features to centralize and standardize integration practices across an entire infrastructure.
An SMB rarely requires an entire product suite, and they might be just looking to deploy a couple of applications connectors to integrate cloud/ on-premises applications. But due to the pricing structure, they end up paying higher.
DXchange integration cloud offers a freemium plan that gives you unlimited access to the best of the breed integration platform. As you plan to grow, DXchange provides you with a variety of pricing options to cater to your integration needs in the best possible way.
3. Scalability as a Service – An enterprise using open-source platform for integration finds itself at the backfoot when it looks to scale or expand the usage of the platform. In the expansion mode, businesses need to upgrade and deploy more business applications either on-prem or on-cloud. Building new application integrations using open source platform is a time-consuming affair and will need an IT expert’s involvement. Such integration platforms have scalability limitations and on the other hand, procuring out-of-box connectors for each application doesn’t solve the purpose either.
When you use DXchange Integration Cloud, you have the option to access a comprehensive range of application connectors and protocols that the platform supports to handle complex business scenarios effectively, with a flat subscription model. In fact, with DXchange integration platform you pay no additional costs for on-prem connectivity, support for multiple environments, deployment etc., which lets you scale up your business easily.
4. User-Friendly Integration Tool – Most of the options available in the market require a certain level of coding for customization and configuration. This burdens businesses to deploy a dedicated IT team for the deployment purpose. Even to perform a basic integration operation, technical expertise is needed. Such platforms are IT expertise-driven, and one needs to understand the whole documentation and coding language before they get down to integration.
DXchange offers a robust integration platform with a graphical data mapper and support for different parsers and application connectors. It abstains you from writing lengthy queries/scripts to perform the integration, helping LOB users to implement the integration without the involvement of IT staff or technically skilled expertise. It empowers the business user community and promotes efficiency across the enterprise.
Choose not just the platform, but a partner for your integration journey

It truly gives you the freedom to explore your business efficiency to its true potential without worrying about scalability and further investments.
