What is App Connect?

Thousands of businesses rely on App Connect to instantly connect applications, data, legacy systems and modern technologies through a variety of integration styles—from traditional service-oriented architectures to modern, agile and event-driven ones—virtualizing access to data wherever it lives for exposure as APIs.

App Connect - connect applications, data, technologies and more.

Do more with your apps and data—and do it fast. Integrate it, build APIs with it and act on it.

Integrate apps and data

Automatically copy and synchronize data between on-premises and cloud-based applications without worrying about mismatched sources, formats and standards. For example, your business may need to sync customer data between a SaaS CRM system and an on-premise database.

Build APIs

Reliably access, transform and combine data assets across all your enterprise applications, databases and systems and expose them as APIs. For example, your business may need to provide an API to a business partner that collects product detail information and current inventory to allow the partner to confidently complete an order.
