Integration Services

Businesses now rely highly on information technology for smooth functioning. IT is now the main contributor for the co-ordination, management and tracking of all major business processes, infrastructure and resources. System integration takes this information technology benefit to the next level for businesses.
System integration is the process of integrating all business processes and operations to a single place, the central server. The central server act as the storage and as database of all data; it also host many business applications that make communications with client systems possible. The server to client communication can be on any type of network including internet, LAN, WAN and Wireless networks.
System integration offers many advantages to businesses.
Businesses can perform as a single unit even if they are operating from many places. As the software, data and applications hosted and accessed from same central server, everything will be same in every branch which in turn helps offering customers a standardized service. It also enables businesses to offer some value added services like in case of banking enterprises that now offer any branch banking facility.
Enterprises can reap better productivity with system integration. The integration of different branches, departments, databases and networks offer better resources and organized infrastructure. Also, businesses can reduce a huge part of manual labor required for integrating these different branches and departments.
Better security to enterprise data and infrastructure. As everything is stored and accessed on a centralized server, it would be very easy to data backup, implement disaster recovery and business continuity solutions, data archive and database update. Also, businesses can undertake massive database or application updates that can be made effected on the whole or part of the organization. Also, because the workforce will be operating same software programs and applications across the enterprise, transfers and promotions should not result in any major adaptation issues.
System integration offer real-time monitoring and management possible across the organization. There is no need of generating and compiling reports at branch offices or at different departments. Everything will be available on demand. The enterprise management tasks like CRM, sales force automation, marketing and accessibility management can be easily implemented and monitored in real-time.
Better support for new enterprise IT solutions. These include better support for virtualization, consolidation, networking processes and for cloud computing, VoIP and communication systems. Integration Services  also increases workforce mobility.
And last not least, cost savings. Enterprises can save cost of many different servers and related hardware and separate networking and in-house reporting/communications. There will be also cost savings by reducing workforce requirements, better management of workforce and better productivity.
