What is Google Cloud's Application Integration? All you need to know.

Google Cloud's Application Integration is a relatively new Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) offering, which became generally available in July 2023. Application Integration connects internal apps and external SaaS for smoother dataflow and automated workflows. 

But before diving into its solutions, let's explore the common challenges businesses face due to fragmented data.

The SaaS Struggle: When More Apps Mean More Chaos

Many businesses need help with scattered data across various applications, causing communication barriers and limiting insights. Manual data transfer could be more efficient and prone to errors. Adopting software-as-a-service (SaaS) adds complexity, with tasks spread across different systems. 

Integration challenges are widespread, but there are strategies for mastering them.

Some companies deploy Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) solutions, initially promising but often needing to be more flexible over time. Alternatively, a cloud-centric approach with serverless functions offers simplicity but may lead to development bottleneck issues.
