Keep Integration Planning Front and Centre
When planning to solve business issues and looking at which technology is going to assist you to grow, it’s important to keep integration planning front in center. Understanding how your data moves within your organization should align with your business goals and that requires strategic integration consultation.
If you were to skip the step of integration planning and make integration an afterthought, in the end, you might come to realize that the applications you have implemented into your business have weak API’s or a lack of functionality or flexibility when it comes to integrating your data together across systems and across your entire organization. By keeping integration front and center while considering solutions to your eCommerce problems, you can ensure integration can be implemented with ease and efficiency. Keeping strategy in mind is everything.
The Benefits of Integration Planning
The benefits of integration planning, while you are solution planning, are trifold.
- Don’t Get Caught Off Guard
