A cloud application provider worth doing business with will share the burden of integration with its customers versus leaving them on their own. Cloud providers should make an integration infrastructure and integration tools available, assist its customers with integrations, and develop a partner ecosystem that includes consultants, integrators, and other software and SaaS companies.
At Locus, we believe seamless integration between our products and other products and services is another opportunity to transfer even more cost and complexity occurring within customers’ data centers into the cloud. We’ve developed, and will continue to develop, tools for customers and partners to build their integrations, and the infrastructure in our cloud to execute them. Customers can control the execution of integrations without baring the complexity of managing the infrastructure.
