Solutions for Cloud Services Integration / SaaS Integration Proliferate

by Benoit Lheureux  |  April 19, 2010  |  3 Comments

My colleagues and I recently published more analysis on various providers of solutions for Cloud Services Integration / SaaS Integration. Research (license required) includes:

Across these bits of research we’ve provided analysis of the Cloud Services Integration / SaaS Integration offerings from Appirio, Appresso, Boomi, Cast Iron, Celigo, Informatica, Infoteria, iWay Software, Jitterbit, Loren Data, Microsoft and Pervasive. Its a good start but we’ve run across dozens of providers with various forms of integration solutions for SaaS and other Cloud services. Many offerings are based on integration as a service (IaaS), but its worth noting that many IT users are still leveraging various B2B software approaches to integration Cloud-based services with each other, and with on-premise applications. Only a few providers offer Cloud-based IDE’s, and even fewer offer API’s for provisioning and leveraging Cloud-based integration functionality (per my Cloud API Manifesto for Integration As A Service), but we’re tracking this trend as more do so over time.

Thoughts on Solutions for Cloud Services Integration / SaaS Integration Proliferate


  1. Wow:

    “….analysis of the Cloud Services Integration / SaaS Integration offerings from Appirio, Appresso, Boomi, Cast Iron, Celigo, Informatica, Infoteria, iWay Software, Jitterbit, Loren Data, Microsoft and Pervasive.”

    To have Loren Data Corp mentioned in that cohort is gratifying and a high-water milestone in the company’s long history. It was educational participating in your study, Ben; we learned a great deal about the grand horizon of integration services, and our evolving place in it.

    Great analysis, thanks again.

  2. Interesting list of vendors …

    … and more interesting is the topic that a Gartner study doesn’t mention IBM and their efforts with Hubspan and esp. the announced hybrid cloud connectivity solution and project Silverlining mentioned by the WebSphere CTO Jerry Cuomo at: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/blogs/gcuomo/?lang=en
