Everything Must Be Connected

For many, modernization means replacing costly and outdated on-premises legacy systems with more flexible user-friendly cloud applications. For others, it means introducing interoperability between mission-critical legacy systems and SaaS services. Some will also cite the need to embrace mobile, big data and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. Nowadays... everything should be connected to stay in business. Regardless of the technologies or business goals, integration makes modernization work. Modernization cannot happen if new cloud applications exist in silos, leaving data fragmented across the enterprise. Cloud applications experience increased traffic and it’s becoming difficult to connect and deploy on the fly to meet increasing data connectivity demands Making agile, cloud-based integration a centerpiece of application modernization opens new opportunities for business and IT. ConnectPlaza will demonstrate and explain - together with an award winning Progress Partner - how this Progress Partner has APIs that become a business priority that drives revenue by connecting with internal and partner applications.
