System Integration turns isolated software into unified systems that talk to each other.
Done right, your business operations will flow seamlessly. As your business evolves, your systems may need to change to meet new demands.
To address changes, you will need to have an updated overview of the integrations, as well as an overview over limitations and security.
Not having the complete overview, can be frustrating and leads to wasted hours filling the integration gap.
How easy is it to get the integration up and running? Hours and money spent should be known before starting an integration project.
Will it scale as your business grows? What happens if your product goes viral? Will the system be able to cope with the amount of new customers.
Is the integration safe? Can anybody from outside your company get access to the data? What will the damage cost you? Employees can by accident create data leaks and how do you prevent data leaks?
Can changes only be done by a developer? Going forward can anybody at your company make the needed changes?
Adhere to standards, don’t go with home brewed solutions that only works now but may not work in the future.
