Application integration is setting out to be a major gamechanger in this digital age where enterprises are feeling the pressure to identify and deploy the right integration strategy. This has opened up an avenue for service providers to cater to varying integration requirements. With the increasing adoption of cloud-based integration, the rise in hybrid integration, the advent of IoT (internet of things) and data-centric integration in the backdrop of DevOps practices and digital transformation goals, 2018 looks like a year of rapid growth for application integration.
As a global provider of software products and services that enable businesses to achieve DevOps success, we are excited to be part of Gartner’s next premier conference. Catch us at the Gartner Application Strategies & Solutions Summit 2017 at Las Vegas, NV, December 4-6 for the ultimate digital experience.
It’s official. ConnectALL® is now a registered trademark. Since its inception five years ago, our family of customers has grown substantially. Hundreds of enterprises like yours, across industries, have benefited from the ConnectALL Integration Platform.
In part one of this two-part blog series, I discussed how the ConnectALL Integration Platform can enable communication between teams almost instantaneously – processes, data (like status, priority, and assignee data), dependencies between issues (like "this issue depends on this other issue being resolved first"), comments, and attachments can be shared across an organization. The ConnectALL Integration Platform can create an efficient collaboration mechanism. The Platform also reduces the number of licenses needed for an application (ConnectALL only needs one license per application synchronized), and users only have to be trained on one platform. They continue to use the tool they are used to without having to switch to another tool in order to do manual data entry.
Effective application integration is a big deal. It can eventually be the difference between a company's success and its eventual decline. It's so big a deal that IT Advisory Company Gartner studied the topic and created a research paper about it - 'Market Guide for Application Integration Platforms,' (Gartner, Market Guide for Application Integration Platforms, 19 June 2017) a paper that is available to Gartner subscribers.
We’ve just announced a new version of the ConnectALL Integration Platform that integrates QMetry Test Management into your DevOps and agile infrastructures.

Here at Go2Group, we know your teams don't use just one tool – that's why we've been working hard to integrate more and more applications. Agile and DevOps teams use tools that meet their needs; developers use the applications that work best for them. QA/testing use their tools of choice, as do resource management, operations, management, and others.
Choosing the right Application Integration Vendor can have a significant impact on the future of your enterprise. The right Application Integration Vendor can help your organization smoothly connect multiple departments that use various sets of tools (development, management, quality control, human resources, planning, etc). A poor choice could make application integration slow, difficult, and costly – ultimately reducing your organization's overall performance and productivity. Here's a list of questions to help you determine which Application Integration Vendor is best for your organization.
IT integration has two major forms: application integration and data integration. To understand the two and what they mean for your business, it is necessary to learn about their history, the technologies they are based on, what each one is meant to accomplish, and their future.
