Integration Challenges

As organizations collect and store more information, data integration is becoming increasingly problematic. Nearly 70 percent of respondents to a recent global survey of IT professional and business users called data integration a high or very high inhibitor of new-application implementation.

What’s holding companies back? There are several key issues:

Lack of business case definition. Midsized and large companies cite “lack of collaboration between sales and finance” as their biggest obstacle when planning to create an integrated environment. They want to foster more dialogue and communication—but the current approach clearly isn’t working.

Poor data integration infrastructure. Many sales and financial managers would like to overhaul their existing approaches and adopt “Best Practices”; however, they are not sure where to start. Ideally, they would like a “map” for improving their processes, and would like to know what has been successful for others—but their peers are in similar situations.

The Software as a Service Advantage

Software as a Service (SaaS) is the most powerful and exciting development in enterprise software in over a decade. Why is that? SaaS solutions solve many of the problems that have long plagued traditional enterprise software offerings, such as large upfront license fees, long implementations, complicated upgrades, and poor support. Fundamentally, the SaaS model simply provides better value to customers.

InterWeave’s Software as a Service Solutions can be accessed on-demand or deployed on-premises, in a company’s datacenter or hosting provider, in order to meet a wide range of customer needs. In both cases, InterWeave presents significant advantages over traditional enterprise data and system integrators:

  • Lower Costs ·· InterWeave’s annual subscriptions are based on a model which reflect feature and functions, with discounts for bundled and multi-year contracts. The total cost of the solutions and services are typically a fraction of the cost of enterprise software alternatives.
  • Faster Deployments·· InterWeave implementation projects average less than 10 days of elapsed :me, compared with 6 months or more for enterprise alternatives.
  • Greater Ease of Use·· From the beginning, InterWeave has been designed for business users, not technical IT users. With intuitive, pick lists, drop downs and unlimited custom field additions, users typically require under two hours of training.
  • More Transparency ··Unlike traditional software companies, InterWeave provides complete transparency around its operations, solutions monitoring, error processing and customer support interactions are available online — 24/7/365.
  • Lower Risk·· The configurable SaaS approach significantly reduces risk. Each customer may configure their solutions to exactly fit their specific needs, and subscriptions can be cancelled at any time if a company is not receiving value. Enterprise alternatives require large upfront capital outlays without a real understanding of the software.
  • Higher Customer Satisfaction·· SaaS is truly a “service” business model, which means that InterWeave is keenly focused on providing exceptional value to attract and retain satisfied customers. There is a profound difference in the relationship compared to what’s typical with enterprise software companies, and our customers agree—InterWeave has received the highest customer satisfaction marks among all leading integration vendor in independent industry surveys.
  • InterWeave’s SaaS approach is ideally suited for any company that has limited personnel, time, or capital resources.
