Smarter integration of applications and data

Share this post:

Effective integration of applications and data is essential to digital transformation, but traditional approaches to integration are slow to implement and hard to scale.

In that connection, IBM Cloud Pak for Integration is your gateway to connect the dots of your applications and data in a smarter way. The solution delivers a new, AI-accelerated approach to integration that enables extended teams to create integrations, leverages a complete set of integration styles and capabilities, and embeds AI and automation.

In the video below, my colleague Sai Vennam outlines a quick overview of the solution and explains why it is a game-changer in terms of making smarter integration through higher speed and increased quality. For instance, he points out how companies have increased their speed of integration development by 300%, reduced their costs of integration by over 33%, and increased their overall operational efficiency. All this while maintaining enhanced security, governance, and availability (Source: CVS Health client story, Forrester TEI Study).
