5 advantages of self-service integration

Self-service has been on the rise for years: not only in the financial world, but also in the travel industry, the hospitality industry and in the IT sector the concept is applied. In our previous blog we wrote about the possibilities of self-service integration. Now in part 2: what advantages does this solution offer?

Last time you could read that some business users – whether forced or not – work outside the boundaries of the IT department to meet their own information needs. The problem with this is that no one knows where all the data is stored and it happens completely outside the control of the IT organization. By using a cloud integration platform, you can easily solve this problem. We list the main advantages of ‘do it yourself’.

1. Self-service integration makes organizations more agile

Sales or marketing people no longer have to wait for an IT person to have time, they can get started right away themselves without needing programming experience. IT staff can focus entirely on more strategic problems.

2. Everything under the control of the IT organization

Everything within the platform is controlled under authorization. Employees do not have direct access to the data from the applications, but only have access to components to connect the data.

3. Self-service integration is possible for on-premises and cloud applications

Business users can easily create integrations themselves, both with applications installed within the organization and with applications in the cloud.

4. Relief for your IT organization.

The maintenance and management of this cloud-based integration platform no longer weighs on the staff in your IT organization.

5. Transparent costs.

The costs of self-service integration are clear and transparent. You know exactly where you stand.
