As more and more applications migrate to the Cloud, the challenge of maintaining an integrated ecosystem grows increasingly difficult, and essential. New product categories like Integration Platform as a Service (iPaas) help streamline the spiderweb of traditional point-to-point integrations while shifting the effort from the shoulders of high-skill engineering resources to the fingertips of ‘citizen developers’ with no-code, drag-and-drop interfaces. These new solutions will give institutions the tools they need to define their portfolio-wide student ecosystem, and allow Oracle to deliver out-of-the-box integrations so that schools can concentrate resources on mission critical projects.
