Custom systems integration is a powerful way for companies to standardize their processes, reduce complexity in their networks, and increase data transparency. Systems integration also saves time and money, since unintegrated systems cannot communicate with each other, leading to higher operation costs and resource use. Read on to discover the current state of the custom systems integration market and where systems integration may take your operation in the future.
Current State of the Custom Systems Integration Market
According to the System Integration Report from Research and Markets, systems integration was a $330 billion industry in 2021 (and the year’s not over yet!). Experts predict it will grow 8.5 percent over the next six years, to a projected $575 billion in 2027.
So, who is benefiting from the advantages custom systems integration offers? American companies in the health care, government, utilities, finance, and insurance industries have all experienced improved efficiency and standardized operations after integrating their data systems. What’s more, demand for cloud-based systems is growing across all industries.
iPaaS Joins Local and Cloud Data
Integration Platform as a Service, or iPaaS, is a new innovation in custom systems integration. This new type of systems integration has been embraced by transportation and oil and gas companies that operate multiple locations. iPaaS systems join local and cloud-based applications, data, and processes across multiple sites so teams can work efficiently wherever they are in the field.
IT professionals build iPaaS solutions into a single dashboard. From this dashboard, you can access all of your local and cloud-based applications. These tools are all connected to each other and updated in real time, giving you and your team the most up-to-date information possible. iPaaS solutions will become more popular in the next few years.
FMS for Manufacturers
Flexible Manufacturing Systems, or FMS, improve manufacturing product quality. They connect physical smart machines, such as robotic arms, to each other as well as the manufacturer’s data systems to automate the manufacturing process. Due to automation and the highly flexible control software used to talk to the machines on the manufacturing line, FMS can reduce labor costs and quality variability, improving efficiency and product quality.
Integrated Security Structure
Data and systems security are top concerns for US companies across all industries. Custom systems integration can integrate security coverage across all applications and software, making it much easier for companies to confirm their data is safe and to manage the security of their data day-to-day and in the long term. Custom systems integration is a growing service, and we suspect it will only become more in-demand over the next five to ten years.
