How good is your Vendor Analysis?

How good is your vendor analysis?

With a huge increase in cloud adoption predicted for 2018, the number of integration solutions available has grown immensely and choosing the right vendor for your business can seem overwhelming.


So how do you choose the right vendor?

Choosing the right vendor for your integration solution can be difficult, and there are several questions you should ask when considering your options, including:

  • Is the solution suitable for your business needs?
  • Can you make the business case for investment?
  • How will you implement the solution?
  • How will you address application security?
  • Should we choose a cloud or hybrid solution for our use case?

IntegrationWorks partners with a range of high performers in integration technology, one of which is IBM, who places as a leader, a challenger and a visionary in a wide range of technology markets.
