Your Digital Transformation Strategy
In a MuleSoft survey of 651 IT decision-makers from enterprises with more than 1,000 employees, respondents said integration was a major barrier to digital transformation.
And organizations have a lot to integrate; on average, companies with more than 1,000 employees use more than 1,000 individual applications in all of their businesses.
Integration between systems, the pitfall of digital transformation
A common way for businesses to connect applications to each other is to custom code their applications and APIs, often referred to as point-to-point integration.
However, for a company with more than 1,000 applications, this level of tight coupling can create problems when changes, evolutions, or updates occur.
IT decision-makers say that on average, only 29 percent of their business applications are currently integrated or connected.
