6 reasons to implement IT integration

The well-timed integration of IT systems leads to significant savings and ensures that the data and processes critical to your business flow smoothly.

Put simply, the purpose of IT integration is to enable data sharing between different systems. Although integration is often needed for solutions between companies and organisations, our experts sometimes see the need for an integration solution in the creation and lifecycle management of a company’s internal systems.

These are the main benefits of IT integrations:

  1. Combining separate data repositories: transfer of data between different systems to combine data
  2. Cost savings using partners’ services: Saving labour and money by using a partner’s interface instead of building a separate interface for the company’s service.
  3. Production of income through self-owned productised interfaces: The service provider can build an interface for its own service and sell the interface to the customer together with the service.
  4. Improving the customer experience: Facilitating customer transactions by providing access to multiple services with a single login, for example.
  5. Standardisation: Transferred data will be entered in a standardised format with the integration solution, so data can be transferred to other organisations who use the solution.
  6. Software lifecycle and risk management: Data retention and the operation of the service are secured by transferring data in the background when the system is renewed.
