Systems Integration: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 25, 2011
Against a background where companies are coerced into recalibrating their communication applications and network infrastructure into cost-effectively supporting distributed Information Technology applications, the importance of systems integration services/solutions comes to the fore. The modern, networked world is controlled and driven by computers as computing is what makes industries and businesses tick. The techno-centric structure of companies, enterprises, and their IT approaches brings systems integration into the spotlight as the most basic necessity of the information technology era. Over the last two to three decades, integration has taken on a strategic role across a wide gamut of industrial sectors. This is because while heterogeneity, proprietary characteristics of most applications and multiplicity results in the creation of data and application islands, trends such as decentralization, digitalization, globalization of business processes, require software applications to interact with both internal and external systems. This thereby pushes the importance of inter-enterprise and intra-enterprise integration into the spotlight.
Currently, the ability to make disparate component subsystems (including hardware & software) work together as a whole represents a core capability, which modern high-technology companies can ill afford to ignore. Improvement in data/systems integration allows companies to better manage their IT portfolio, reduce redundancies in IT policies, and safeguard against IT application failure. Systems integration has and will continue to remain one of the most challenging tasks in a world that relies on an integrated architecture. Effective systems integration is therefore critical in achieving high levels of data integrity, which in turn is important for the effective functioning of an organization. The need to connect and synchronize applications to help them communicate and collaboratively function in a converged environment will drive growth for integration. In addition, factors such as, IT fragmentation, the need to remain agile, and adaptive, to overthrow inflexibilities arising out of a disintegrated IT ecosystem, will push businesses to adopt a wide range of integration practices, policies, platforms, prototypes, and processes.
Of late, rising levels of complexity led by growing sophistication of enterprise networks has prompted several businesses to hire the services and expertise of external systems integrators. This thereby has played an instrumental role in magnifying the market prospects for systems integration service providers. Future growth prospects also remain bright as businesses continue to search for an open and distributed systems/architectures. The need to maximize returns on investments on software applications, and optimize efficiency in business operations, such as, improved workflow process, greater employee productivity/satisfaction, shorter business process, improved data integrity, reduced maintenance costs and reduction in redundancy, will fuel growth in the global Systems Integration market over the next few years.
Strong demand for enterprise application software (EAS), including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), product lifecycle management (PLM), HR Applications, Data Management and Business Intelligence (BI), all of which help enhance profitability, operational efficiency and competitiveness of businesses, also bodes well for the systems integration market. Increased focus of companies on datacenter optimization strategies will create demand for IT Infrastructure integration in addition to application integration services and solutions. Virtualization as a means for consolidation of IT resources will drive up opportunities for systems integration and consulting services.
As companies increasingly move towards a converged environment, the need to extract the maximum returns/value from infrastructure will gain in importance, and systems integration as a tool to achieve this is optimally poised to benefit from the trend. Therefore, the need to build a converged network infrastructure that is scalable, reliable, and cost-effective will require integrating multi-vendor solutions, products and technologies, which in turn upholds the future of systems integration.
