Predictable and efficient IT transformation has become more important to hedge against an uncertain world. The need for organisations to increase the speed of integrations while lowering costs has never been felt so acutely.
The problem is that 70% of digital transformation projects fail due to a lack of integration quality. Too often, traditional approaches to integration are slow to implement, hard to scale and laden with skill-intensive, complex technologies.
The pressure to move fast with lean teams means that there is not enough scope to be guided by accurate real-world operational data. Yet IT teams face the challenge of ensuring that their organisation’s critical data can easily move from where it is generated to where it is consumed.
Technologies like IBM Cloud Pak® for Integration can help. It delivers a modern, agile approach to integration across the integration lifecycle. Customers report having been able to
