Applications can quickly and easily be integrated into the cloud environment using iPaaS, which accelerates migration to and adoption of Microsoft Azure. Crucially, it eliminates integration silos. In addition, Software AG’s solution helps organizations stay connected to their critical applications and information during the transition to the cloud / new operating environments.

“Integration plays a huge role in defining a company’s success, therefore quick and easy access to critical information and applications will define the cloud era,” said Dr. Stefan Sigg, Chief Product Officer at Software AG. “ iPaaS lets companies handle their workloads closer to where their infrastructure is located, increasing activity speed, reducing latency, and providing the highest-quality cloud experience possible.”

“Companies transitioning to the cloud expect instant results, not delayed gratification,” added Thorsten Herrmann, Managing Director Microsoft Deutschland GmbH. “The combination of our industry-leading Azure cloud platform with Software AG’s integration expertise and technologies helps ensure that customers will be able to drive a faster return on their cloud investments.”

Software AG’s iPaaS has a cloud provider-agnostic architecture, built on a Kubernetes and Docker foundation. It is designed to position customers for success as multi-cloud environments increase in enterprise adoption across the globe. Customers will be able to maximise their use of Azure, while integrating other applications or workflows that might currently sit on another platform. This provides faster access to information and applications, while reducing latency.

Dr. Sigg continued “Imagine that your department receives data from multiple applications located in Microsoft Azure, but at the same time, another department uses another platform. The data is complementary and you need to combine your insights. You can integrate your data in the Microsoft Azure instance of, while your colleagues do the same in the instance of specific to their cloud provider. Now your data is effectively in the same place for you to see the whole picture and act on it in the best interests of your customers, partners or employees.”
