Systems integration for real-time decisions and highest efficiency
When it becomes urgent for the company to integrate its systems?
The last possible time is when all three conditions co-align:
1. Employees are overwhelmed by a multitude of applications daily.
2. There is a constant need for IT support to help with daily operations.
3. Leadership has not enough real-time data to make fast decisions.
Consequence? Slow and inefficient work, loss of productivity, costly maintenance, many opportunity costs and lost customers or market share to a competitor.
Shortly, a terrifying future.
Nothing can go wrong, right?
Setting up integration systems is a complicated procedure, which, when done incorrectly, does not support high availability, quick changes and short feedback loop.
A common mistake is adopting technologies not optimal for supporting processes, introduced by an incomplete understanding of business processes and lack of knowledge in available technologies.
That brings us to one of the most notorious and well-known problems: an unmaintainable system. It is one of the worst scenarios that strike hard both business users as well as the technical people.
Further on, uninformed quick decisions can lead your company to vendor lock-in. Especially hard to get rid of when the technology is not widely used, and there is a significant deficiency of experts in that particular field.
Given the fact that implementing an integration system can be quite a notable investment, the most significant waste of resources is undoubtedly building a system you do not even need, or nobody uses it. In some cases, it is better to use the existing mechanisms, which are already familiar to the users, to achieve the desired outcome.
