Make

Are you planning to implement an integration platform or an iPaaS solution? To help you navigate the plethora of integration platforms, we’ve created comparisons with the most popular solutions. In this comparison, we’re exploring the difference between two renowned integration platforms, namely the Alumio iPaaS and Make. We compare their common attributes, platform features, pricing structures, industrial specialization, and overall user-friendliness.

Comparing the Alumio iPaaS with the Make automation platform

Make (formerly known as Integromat) is primarily an application automation platform. It provides a no-code visual workflow builder to swiftly create automation between over 1500 apps. Make provides a free base version and starts with relatively low pricing plans, as it is designed to make application automation available to individual users and SMBs first.

The Alumio integration platform (iPaaS) provides a flexible cloud-native solution that helps businesses of all sizes integrate unlimited applications, systems, and data sources. While it provides no-code features to make integrations simple for non-coding business users, it is primarily a low-code integration solution that offers developer-friendly integration features and customizability. Designed as a scalable solution for both SMBs and enterprises to develop, govern, and orchestrate integrated ecosystems, Alumio provides full-feature access and unlimited integrations across all plans, with a limitation on the number of tasks.
