Looking to skip all the complications of controlling your data across multiple integrations? Using the Alumio iPaaS is as simple as skipping to the conclusion of this blog, which talks about how an iPaaS helps you skip the complications of creating integrations. Read on to find out how!

Why controlling data across integrations can be complicated?

So, let’s assume you are in the process of digitalizing your growing company. You’ll need to start by connecting your existing ERP (enterprise resource planning) system to a B2B/B2C e-commerce platform, in order to digitalize your orders, transactions, complaints, returns, helpdesk, guarantees, and more. You may also require to connect your suppliers and relations directly via EDI, XML, or JSON.

To achieve this, you probably spend multitudinous hours creating complex integrations by writing custom code, using several plugins and add-ons, and end up relying on several partners for the maintenance of all your integration solutions. All of this costs a lot of money, time, and troubleshooting, leaving you with a bunch of projects to monitor and manage. And if you need to integrate your IT landscape any further with a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system, a PIM (Product information management) system, or any other digital system or web service, the complications multiply.  

More importantly, maintaining control over your data across all these systems becomes increasingly complicated. This makes it difficult to ensure data security and compliance with privacy legislation such as the GDPR. Also, if you’re working with several integration partners, you have to rely on them for monitoring, managing, or modifying your integrations. All of the above results in a tangled IT landscape where your data and integrations are far from retaining normalization or control:

The data-related problems occurring in such a scenario are:

Lack of control over data
Using several partners/solutions and being unable to manage integrations yourself, risks the loss of data integrity with every change you make to your integrations.

Bad security
Relying on different technical solutions from different integration partners for different problems.

No data compliance
Lack of data centralization across integrations risks non-compliance with privacy legislations.

Manual monitoring or logging
This costs several work hours and leads to delays in detecting data errors across integrations.

No integration flexibility
Migrating from one kind of ERP, CRM, PIM, or e-commerce platform to a better-suited one is as good as starting over.

Lack of data insight
Data silos and scattered data gathering across multiple integration solutions prevent a holistic overview of your data.

Like with quicksand, the best way to control your data across multiple integrations is to stop struggling with it. Simply get a pass on all these and many other integration dilemmas with the Alumio iPaaS (integration platform as a service).
